Great photo of a beautiful little plant. I tended to over-water the one I had. I'm much better with outside plants than inside ones. I do have a few in my kitchen, but they are hardly delicate.

This one is the eldest. :-) It is actually almost 15 inches in spread and will have about 60-80 blooms at a time through all of summer. I'm very proud of this one, taken as one leaf 6 years ago.

Keep the photos coming, I love to see the whole plant. I just couldn't get mine to take..... I'm much to heavy on the old watering hand me thinks!

They like to get a bit dry between each. I'll keep updateing. I have a link to my garden on the right under 'what else'. There'll be a collection of all this plant photos, or you can get there through the saintpaulia link.
