Plant of The Month For October - Streptocarpus

Streptocarpus
We have a special offer on plants from specialist grower and RHS Chelsea medal winner Dibley's until the end of October.

Related by family to the familiar African Violets, these delightful long-flowering beauties are an excellent addition to any indoor plant collection. Divided into two groups; Streptocarpus saxorum and Streptocarpellas, most houseplant varieties take their origin from the saxorum group. Found in woodland ravines and the valleys of the Drakensburg Mountains of South Africa, they first appeared in this country in 1826.
Diminutive in stature yet bursting with beguiling blooms, they are fairly easy to look after if you follow a few simple rules. They need to be kept in a room with bright light but avoid direct sunlight. Over exposure to direct sunlight will brown the leaves and fade the flowers; an east or west facing window maybe the perfect location.
Overwatering is as bad as under-watering for your Streptocarpus plants. So allow the compost to dry out and then replenish the moisture level; this will avoid the problem of root rot, and keep your plants happy and healthy. Less watering in winter is required, but they may still continue to flower for several months. Feeding with a high-potash feed after re-potting in the springtime is the best option to promote flowering with a gradual increase of watering frequency.
Deadhead the flowers individually as they fade and keep plants above 5 degrees Celsius at all times. A degree of leaf die-back will normally occur and these ends can be neatly trimmed off to keep your plants looking good. Propagation from leaf cuttings and seed can be achieved with a little planning and preparation.
We have a good selection of these delightful Streptocarpus houseplants in October, direct from our specialist grower’ Dibleys nursery’. They have won 25 Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medals and hold the National collection of these gorgeous yet robust Streptocarpus plants. Lots of information and advice can be found on the Dibleys website for the enthusiastic grower, plus common sense advice from our staff here at Bawdeswell Garden Centre, when you purchase your plant(s): Just ask a member of the plant team.
