Streptocarpus saxorum is a species found in the western cape area of South Africa. This is an attractive species which can be a showstopper when gown well. The inflorescences measure up to 10 cm and bear solitary flowers that each measure 1 cm across. Plants bloom during the spring, summer and autumn.

 

This plant is flowering size and is growing in a pot. Grow Streptocarpus saxorum in a pot and use a soil, perlite, moss and fine bark mix as a media. Make sure the plant gets sufficient air movement particularly when gown in humidity above 70%; always give plants moderate shade. Plants need to be grown in a wet and dry cycle; I water this species once a week or when the potting mix starts looking dry. This species likes an intermediate to cool greenhouse with night low temperatures of 10-16 degrees and daytime temperatures of 23-34 degrees. Plants will grow and flower indoors if cool night temperatures, and air circulation are provided.
