My new episcias

I recently received an order from Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the episcias they me. All are in 2.5" pots.

Left to right:

La Solidad Bronze, Kee Wee, Ember Lace

Great choice! Keep Amber Lace covered or semicovered - it needs just a bit more babying. Soledad - is the toughest one. I am growing it for the show too - makes gorgeous hanging basket.

Thanks Irina. What do you use as covers? I'm not sure what to look for.

You can get a dome.The best ones are tall with a vent on the top.

you can get a fruit ripener www.fantes.com/fruit-ripener.html

Or a round fish tank.

They grow really well covered - but you need to think "show" - so the container should be attractive.
