Also known as "Cape Primrose", Streptocarpus are easy-to-grow, colorful and can bloom year-round if the right cultural conditions are met.


• Grow in partial sun to shade.

• Keep temperatures above 50°F.

• Water accurately; allow soil to become visually dry between
   waterings.

• Never allow cold water to touch the leaves.

• Go easy on the fertilizer – just once or twice a month with
  a dilute solution.


  1. Gorgeous, constantly in bloom, and care free Review by Dana
    How do you rate this product?

    I got my Something Special from Logee's about 6 years ago. It usually has at least 10 flowers at a time. Sometimes there are as many as two dozen flowers open at the same time. I've had it in a 5" pot all this time--no worries. What a stunning plant! (Posted on 5/30/2015)
