This has been in flower non-stop since last summer - I have four dotted around the house, all grown myself from leaf cuttings, and I think this one is the biggest. Lovely two tone purple flowers #streptocarpus #streptocarpusdenim #houseplant #indoorplant #capeprimrose #gesneriaceae #gesneriad

I've kept them in the greenhouse, but they are looking rather poorly I'm afraid. You did say you would show us how to propagate them.

Ah I had loads of spares last year Rach, gave them all away at my local garden club in the end. They get huge leaves, I’ve got some younger ones of another colour I’ve propagated, I’ll tag you when they start to flower to see what you think @rachelbrooks

Oh dear Gerry, in the greenhouse? Is it heated? I thought they might be too tender for greenhouse 🤔 ok I’ll draw up some leaf cutting instructions for you 👍🏼 @gerryparsnips
