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.

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.


RE: My new episcias

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


RE: My new episcias

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

you can get a fruit ripener

Or a round fish tank.

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