Streptocarpus bonus buds
I noticed something the other day that I hadn't seen before on my Bristol's Sunset. This plant has been a fantastic grower and bloomer, far outstripping my other streps. What I noticed is that on the very first flower stalk, which it sent up over a month ago with a single bud, there are now 2 new little buds coming out. The original flower is quite faded, and I was thinking of removing that stalk. But now it looks like more flowers are coming. They came out of the area where the two small leaf-like projections are.
I've seen some major stalks come up with buds already there, but this time it took a month before anything came out. If I had removed the stalk when the original flower started to fade, I would have missed out on these additional blooms.
I was wondering if anyone had seen that happen on their streps before. I'm wondering if I should try letting the stalks themselves sit after removing spent blooms.
