New to "Other" Gersneriads, and Excited!
Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself. I've been an avid African Violet grower for many years now, and I just discovered the beauty of other Gesneriads. I am so new to growing them, that I just ordered three plants from Lyndon Lyon to try. But I am really excited to see how I do at growing them, and to meet some other people who grow them.
There were a million I liked, but I ordered the following three to start out with:
Episcia - Pink Panther
Chirita - liboensis
Petrocosmea - sp. 'HT-2'
I've read that the above three can be cared for pretty much the same way as AV's, with the Episcia being slightly more sensitive to the cold. What do you think of these, and have any of you had experience with them?
I'm also fascinated by the "Goldfish" plants and the Gloxinias, but I will wait on them till the spring, because I have limited indoor space at the moment.
I'm looking forward to reading about your Gesneriad experiences, and seeing pictures of your plants.
