What is this houseplant?


By Golda

A friend kindly gave me this plant which belonged to her late mother, but does not know the name. Can anyone help please? I want to look after it properly. Thanks




I think it is a Streptocarpus, but cannot help with growing conditions as we do not grow houseplants.

I'm just behind you Owdboggy! I will go with Streptocarpus too... if you want to know some more about care I can look it up for you.

Yes, a Streptocarpus...needs moist air, bright light but not direct sun, freedom from draughts. You can propagate from leaf cuttings in summer and grow more!
