Streptocarpus leaves

Can someone tell me where I can order Strep leaves? Or is there somewhere I can order seeds of named varieties?

Does anyone know where there are any of the Olgevee varieties anymore?

Thanks, Linda

Can't help with where to order leaves, but I hope you know that seeds of named varieties will not be the same as the parent plants. Seeds of hybrids are themselves hybrids. You might possibly get something very nice in which case you might want to register and name it, but it won't be the same and should not be labeled with the name of the parent. You can get seeds, including seeds of named varieties, through the AGGS seed fund, but you'd need to join first. (Well worth it, in my opinion)

RE: Streptocarpus leaves

Hi! I've also been wanting to try out a strep. I ran across this site that sells plants and leaves. You can get 10 leaves, their choice for $11. Of course you can choose your own varieties for 2.75 a leaf. I figure for getting a start 10 random leaves would be nice and economical so that's what I'm doing. LOL The site is also well reccomended. I saw a thread on them and they got good reviews.

Also, here is a site I found on streps that gives very detailed info on care and propagation if you are interested.

Good luck!

If any of you are in England there is a place that does mail order.
It's the African violet Centre near Kings Lynn.
I don't think they sell leaves, just plantlets and whole plants.

Try for leaves. I just received some plants from them, and they arrived in perfect condition.
