  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil or fibre-based compost if grown indoors
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: usually throughout the year
  • Hardiness: tender (will need to be overwintered indoors, or in a shaded greenhouse)

    The first-ever continuously flowering streptocarpus. This is a very floriferous variety with medium-sized small white flowers. The lower three lobes are covered with fine deep blue veins. The narrow, lance-shaped leaves form a very attractive rosette, making Crystal Ice an exceptionally beautiful plant. Grown for their showy flowers, these tender perennials make superb houseplants. They will flower from mid-spring to mid-autumn and tend to bloom more prolifically when slightly pot-bound. Supplied in a white glazed ceramic pot, which offers an immediate and attractive way to display it in your home.

  • Home care: Water regularly during the growing season, allowing the compost to get a little dry in between; during this time they should also be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Overwinter in a shaded greenhouse, or indoors on a south or west-facing windowsill, watering less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre-based compost. They can also be used as summer bedding - grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.

It looks great and does not need much attention. However the leeks seem to droop.

If I buy a Steptocarpus in December will it be in flower?

These plants generally tend to be sent out in flower - whatever time of the year you purchase them.

Which house plant where?

Which house plants you choose should depend on the environment you intend to keep them in, the space available, how much time you can spend preening them as well as your personal preference. For me, foliage house plants are the ticket, because they provid
