Streptocarpus died, no idea why
I've had my strep for 5 months and i was about to re-pot it since they out grow their containers fast, but i noticed each leaf started drying out, not the normal die off where the leave that dries is golden in color but the leaf was still green, just dry and crispy and all the leaves dried and only 2 young ones left and they just became very limp and died as well.
I have no idea what i did wrong, i water it when it is almost dried as a desert and i can tell by weight of container and feeling it with my finger. There were few times where it went completely dry between waterings but it looked fine no limp leaves i always always make sure not to over water so i'm not sure why it died. I was really sad since before that it was doing very well flowering profusely, i want to get another one but how do i know i won't kill it. I've read on this forum how people have trouble keeping their streps alive, i've neeeever killed a plant before so this is upsetting. I had strept Geronimo
p.s. i was also told that streps don't last that long and some are monocarpic.
