Dividing a streptocarpella

Posted by Andalee Z6a, N ID (My Page) on

Hi all,

My grocery store streptocarpella (see link below) is now blooming beautifully, and drying out every 48 hours. If I divide and repot, (with a soil mix like I'd use for AV's), will that kill the blooming off, or will it just slow it down a little? I believe this one is supposed to be a year-round bloomer.

I was also wondering about how tough the cuttings are. How well do they mail? Anyone out there with experience?

Thanks so much!

I have 2 of these and have had them for years.Here in S.Calif i keep it outside all year,and so far no problems.One of them i cut back quite drastically this past winter,the other i trimmed.Both are on their way back to being beautiful.For me it's a very hardy plant.I hope you have good luck with yours.They're beautiful plants,once they take off.We also call them "dancing slippers".here in Calif.
