Description How to Grow Delivery

The delicate colouring of Streptocarpus 'Charlotte' will delight you from spring to autumn. The flowers are a soft violet-blue with a contrasting daub of pale yellow and a delicate eye at the centre. The blooms are daintily held above a neat rosette of dark green, wrinkled foliage. Streptocarpus are easy-care flowering houseplants. Keep them in bright, indirect light and they will reliably produce their exotic and colourful blooms for several months. Height: 30cm (12in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

3 streptocarpus jumbo plug plants (KC8745)

March to September

Place your Streptocarpus in a bright spot but not in prolonged direct sunlight – an east or west-facing windowsill is perfect. Water regularly as the compost begins to dry out but avoid letting the plant sit in water. Feed fortnightly with a high-potash feed (diluted to half strength) to maximise flowering. Cut back spent flower stalks to the base to encourage more to form. As the plant grows, repot as necessary in spring into a slightly larger pot.

October to February

Move to a south facing windowsill if possible. Only water when the compost dries out and don’t feed. Remove any dead leaves and debris to minimise the chance of pests and diseases.
