    I've been growing [a] Streptocarpus plant from a leaf cutting I took back in 2000. It is related to African Violets, but is a pleasant departure in stature from that plant. Very easy and forgiving and a show-stopper in bloom when grown in good light. Looking at it now, it has 5 separate growth points.

    I have quite the collection of Streps (about 35 varietyies), they are great, in all ways superior to African violets in my opinion. What variety do you have?

    I'm not quite sure of the variety or cultivar name- it has a magenta/ fushia flower that blooms in waves throughout the year (3-4 times). I would like to acquire more cultivars in the future. I understand some flower nearly continuously.
