In Singapore, the plant lovers must pay the Botanic Gardens a visit. It is a good tourist destination that the visitor can take a break in the modern city center. As a tropical botanical gardens, the outdoor Episcia grows freely and happily as the ground cover.
Perennial herb, Henckelia hispida is easy to be seen when you trek through
Usually it grows around the peaks of Pahang, Malaysia
(around 1500 Cameron Highlands -2000M) on the shaded ground and tolerates medium to stronger sun light. The flower varies in color, basically
it's white with yellow and purple marks and some clones are nearly white without purple
stripes. Some plants are tall with big foliages but some are compact and small,
I assume this depends on the place it grows. In dry area, it is usually smaller
and compact but those plants in mossy peaks are relatively large-size. It widely distributes in Cameron Highlands.
This is a hybrid made by WUF who also created and announced Sinn. Jung's Mango Sundae last year. I received this seedling of reitzii x bullata last year and grows it until it blooms now. The flower color tends to bullata and the shape tends to reitzii. I don't have other seedling for comparison. If I would add this hybrid in my cross projects, keeping the shine foliage and increasing the flower quality and quantity should be prior to other thoughts.
