Streptocarpus 'White Butterfly'

  • Streptocarpus 'White Butterfly'

    De pe Dibleys asa o descriere:
    An upright stemmed Streptocarpus very similar in habit to S. saxorum. A very prolific flowering plant throughout the year.

    Si mai reamintesc o data ca Genul Streptocarpus se imparte in doua subgenuri:

    - Subgenul Streptocarpus
    - Subgenul Streptocarpella

    Members of the Streptocarpus subgenus Streptocarpella, are very different in form to those mentioned above.

    The flowers and seed pods are similar, but the leaves and stems are caulescent (have stems). Streptocarpellas are generally clump-forming or trailing plants. Their flowers are only about 2.5-3.5 cm in diameter, and their colour range seems to be limited to mid-purples, pale pinks, and white.

    Streptocarpella leaves can be decussate in arrangement (each pair of leaves at a node is at 90 degrees to the ones preceding or following it), or ternate (whorls of 3 leaves at each node). Some specimens may exhibit both on the same plant. Streptocarpella are grown as houseplants, hanging plants, and sometimes as bedding plants.

    The two Streptocarpus subgenera do not interbreed.

    Am obtinut acest hibrid de la Angelika Dibley saptamana trecuta.
    Prima floricica este cam distorsionata. Azi a inflorit alta care este intreaga, poate ii fac si poza.

    Am vazut pe net niste ghivece suspendate superbe cu aceasta planta. Sper sa ajunga si a mea asa vreodata:
