S. dunnii is the source of all of the red color in hybrid Streptocarpus. Its single leaf is particularly distinctive due to its usual grayish-green tone. Note the “abscission zone”, the portion of the leaf that has died off. The ability to jettison a portion of the leaf allows the plant to survive dry seasons by reducing the amount of surface area subject to transpiration of water.
Cover the seeds with a thin layer of peat (about 2 mm).
Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom.
Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 75-83 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-75 F.
Prices is for 5 seeds
