Nothing but Smithiantha ...

Sorry ... if too many Smithiantha ... but these are the few plants remain in heavy bloom after the super cold spell over decades. My Epsicia and Kohleria were seriously destroyed. The seedlings of Smithiantha are growing well, hopefully to have their first bloom in the spring.

Streptocarpella saxorum

This succulent-like plant is easy to grow, requires brighter light to maintain the neat foliage. It gives blue flowers all through the year.

only flower is never enough !

Still struggling in working out a tall Kohleria bloomer ? I know it's a problem to put huge Kohleria into an indoor garden... But dwarf and variegated Kohleria is a good solution for growers who live in cool area. Round and variegated foliage with shorter stem, such Kohleria had been made in Taiwan and they are decent houseplants that will definitely delight you.
