Streptocarpus 'Blue Mars'
This tropical gesneriad is closely related to African Violets and requires much of the same care. Medium to bright indirect light and moderate temperatures such as you have in your home will be the perfect choice for these showy plants. Prefers to be watered when soil is dry to the touch and foliage should be kept dry whenever possible. Repot only when root bound, and then use snug containers. Trumpet shaped blooms appear on semi-sequential stems throughout the year, though the biggest show will be in the spring and summer.
'Blue Mars' is a great favorite with both beginners and long-time collectors. Large, ruffled blooms are a delightful lavender-blue with an indigo-purple eye in the throat. Large growing with broad, heavy foliage. Our stock plants generally finish out in eight inch pan pots. A show-stopper for sure!
We have a very small batch of these growing in 4" pots. Flowering size and can bud anytime. (Please note we must watch the weather carefully to ship this item).
