Starting a cryptanthus collection
Martha Stewart Living features an indoor succulent garden in her September issue and I was wanting to give it a try. Cryptanthus looks like a colorful yet simple way to do this. I have only one very large window that faces east. I want to place my collection there.
I'm planning on putting the plants in 8 inch pots on a large bench. The pots will all be the same but I want a variety of Cryptanthus. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find them locally.
Soil will be just African violet soil with a slow release even number fertilizer mixed in it.
Are there any tips you could give me to help grow Cryptanthus well? And do you know of some online or mail order sources for Cryptanthus?
