Little Kan

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

Not for me

This a great compact, almost miniature, hybrid. Good one to cut your teeth on and can fit nicely on a windowsill. I grew this one very successfully (under lights) for about 4 years. I didn’t give five stars because I didn’t really care for the flower shape. The face isn’t flat and doesn’t look like it’s open all the way (at least under my conditions). I’ve grown many streps over the years but just lost interest in this one. Freebie

Makes me smile

This was my first streptocarpus and I'm so happy I bought it. It has been so easy to care for and has rewarded me with many, many flowers! Reccomended

Precious plant

This precious little strept is perfect! Just my second strept, but my first with flowers, and those flowers are simply amazing in their purple markings! I absolutely love this little guy, and highly recommend it to all!

Growing beautifully!

I'm new to growing streptocarpus, but I haven't killed it yet! :) It's growing well and getting ready to bloom!

Blooming fool

Cute flower. Blooms profusely. If it’s possible for a plant to bloom itself to death, it could be in trouble!

Cute little guy

I received this plant just a couple weeks ago and it's already got 3 new leaves. It is my first streptocarpus and definitely won't be my last. Can't wait to see it bloom!

Fantastic Strep!

This was my very first streptocarpus and it survived through all the missteps I committed while navigating the learning curve for this genus. It flowers profusely and has been among my favorite hybrids for some time now!

Love it!

I had never grown streptocarpus before but now I'm hooked. This one is blooming like crazy and is just gorgeous!

Love this strep! Someone told me to grow them under 15 hours of light and all my streps are blooming like cazy!

Beautiful Blooms

Little Kan was my first strep, and now I'm hooked. I find it very hardy and easy to grow. It is a compact grower, and blooms abundantly. I highly recommend this little strep!

Foilance is beautiful dark green and is the strongest grower of all the streps bought at same time.

Great Little Guy

This is a great little plant -- people are always fascinated by Streptocarpus -- nobody ever knows what they are. My Little Kan was blooming when it arrived and the flowers seem to last forever...

Cutest Little Strep

This plant is a must have for every grower. Purple flowers cover this plant and it's miniature foliage is perfect! Easy to grow even for a beginner.

Compact, healthy plant with profuse blooms. Just lovely!

Lovely Freebie

Little Kan arrived extremely healthy with five leaves and three more coming! Three of those leaves have flower buds just starting to form - nice to see a Japanese hybrid offered, thank you!

I love it!

I only have a few streps, but of the ones I have tried, this one blooms the most. Truly a beautiful plant.
