Beautiful and tiny

This plant is so tiny and delicate. I love the contrast between the gorgeous flowers and slender green leaves. It's a bit more understated than some others, but so charming!

a perfect little!

I'm so happy to add this mini to my strep collection. As usual, a very healthy plant from VB!

Fantastic Bloom & Leaves.

I love this plant. It’s whimsical, and the leaf shape along with the flower makes this one a stunner. The growth of the plant seems to be on par with most of this species, and with my regular violets and codonanthe it’s flourishing with the indirect light it receives. I will be buying more for a few people I adore :)

Good Bloomer

I have a handful of miniature Streps but this is probably my favorite. Beautiful compact strappy foliage and long lasting blooms.

Love it

This plant loves to bloom and does very well among my violets and other plants under grow lights.

Nice healthy plant

Only just got this and of course it's not blooming yet, but seems very healthy and came through the mail in perfect condition.

Can’t wait for this guy to bloom, thank you!

Lovely little plant

Tiny and perfect. Sadly I neglected it when we were in the process of packing to move. I need another!

Great plants, great blooms

This plant is really nice. Noticed a review that mentioned theirs had not bloomed. Mine is definitely blooming, it's by a south facing window, getting sufficient light. The plant came in great shape. Very happy with the purchase.

Hardy, but hasn't bloomed

I have had this plant since the summer of 2016. This 'Strep' has proven hardy and has not given me any troubles keeping it alive...BLOOMING it, on the other hand, has thus far been impossible. I have yet to see a single bloom out of this plant, or out of my stepmum's african violet (not from the violet barn, by the way) since it stopped blooming (I had ordered a miniature kohleria in the same shipment as the strep that did bloom briefly, but then stopped...that plant has since died, oddly).

Great plant!

I love this streptocarpus. It is more subtle than some, but is very floriferous, with a standard of two blooms per stalk, and sometimes three. It is listed as miniature, and although it does not grow as big as some, it still fills a three-inch pot very nicely (with a full leaf spread of ~12 inches from the center, 6 inches in each direction - mine is about 3 years old). The flowers are dainty, and show up well against the leaves. One of my favorites!
