I bought this mini variegated Saintpaulia without ID in a self improvement store. Its diameter is about 4 inches and its leaves are only 3/4 inch wide. I hope someone could ID it. Thanks in advance.
no way anybody can identify one out of 20000 registered and who knows how many non-registered varieties. Love it as it is - and if you want to have a named one - get one from a reputable seller and hold to the tag.
The first thing I do with a NOID is save all text that accompanied the plant--stickers, barcode, plastic sleeve, pot, tag, everything--which I examine for the name of a greenhouse/company. Then I search on the internet for the greehouse/company and hope that they have a website with their inventory info. It's always a long shot, and identifying a plant from a photo is not recommended nor guaranteed, but detective work can be fun. So I do hope your plant came with some kind of sticker or tag.
If not, as Irina said, enjoy your very lovely plant as it is!
Self improvement store...they probably do not have any idea where these AVs came from... If it has a sticker - Product of Canada - it is from Harsters Greenhouses - but I do not think they carry variegated plants. If it says Optimara - it is from Holtkamp greenhouses in Nashville TN - but these plant can be from some smaller supplier.
