HAVE: Chrisostemis Pulchella

cocomo(z10 / PR)June 15, 2006

I have several small Chrisostemis pulchellas. This is a rare gesneriad native to the West Indies. It is very easy to grow has olive-brown shiny and suculent leaves and produces yellow flowers with orange calixes. The flowers die in a week but the bright orange calixes remain for months giving the appearance of an ever blooming plant. It goes through a dormant phase in the winter and dries up leaving corms attached to the dead stems from which new plants can be grown in spring.

I am willing to trade for:

yellow flowering episcias

blue flowering episcias

Streptocarpus (all colors)

Other gesneriads...

begonias, specially rex
