My wife and I went to the Spring Branch AV Show here in Houston and picked up these little jewels:

Rebel's Splatter Kake

Streptocarpus "Blue Mars"

Episcia "Silver Skies"

I wish the silver color of the Episcia showed up better. The photo does it no justice.

Thanks Irina! I can't wait for the strep and episcia to bloom. This is my first go with other gesneriads.

Thanks Larry. The leaves on the episcia are so nice I almost don't care if it ever blooms! They have that same shimmering quality to them that AVs have in their flowers.

I love the strepocarpus I had many at one time

Very nice! My Rebel's Splatter Kake has lost most of the purple fantasy and blooms pink with a white edge - still very pretty but may get another if I have the chance. I love the episcias too. Have a few streps but they have not done too well since I moved in Dec.

Did you manage to only buy 3 plants at the show??? I have not been able to do that yet, but may have to contain myself from now on. LOL

Only got 3 plants at the show. My wife and I only brought about $12 between us so we couldn't get much. It's a good thing because there were a lot of nice plants.

I went to the Wichita, KS. show/sale last weekend and brought home:
Rob's Dandy Lion
Painted Silk
Rob's Calypso Beat
Jolly Sunrise
Milky Way Trail
Tiny Woods Trail
Strep. Iced Pink Flamingo
I also met a plant friend from FB there as well. A great day all in all!,,,Debbie
