are sending out runners. Lilacina has 2 and SS has 3. I am new to gesneriads - do I put a small pot under the runner plant to have it root or is there a special process?

You can put another pot and pin the stolon (runner) onto the soil surface, or you can carefully bend it back into the pot your plant is in and pin it. They will root there. How quickly depends on your conditions, but generally within 2-4 weeks they are pretty firmly rooted for me. Those are nice looking plants so you must be taking good care of them.
