s KartuzGreenhouses in Vista, California, would travel a couple of hours each year to give my local gesneriad chapter a talk and to help judge the annual show. Heâ€™d bring dozens of Streptocarpus, Sinningias, and other gesneriads to show and sell. I was mostly a Sinningia grower, but the Streps began to appeal to me. Michael kindly stayed after his talks to answer my questions about growing and hybridizing Streps. He is my mentor.
Exotic "Weeds" in Wisconsin|
By Dave G. on August 12, 2014
Over the past several months, I have had the pleasure to write several articles highlighting hybridizers which many may not be aware of. Linda Rowe and Wendy DeLorme-Knapp of New York and recently Betty Cessna of Pennsylvania. Today, it is a honor to introduce yet another, a lady equally talented from Fitchburg, WI, Nancy Braun, who is a great trading partner and a dear friend over the years. I asked Nancy to give a background on how she became involved with streps and she graciously agreed. So, here we go. I believe you will find her journey an interesting one.
A Keystone in Hybridizing|
By Dave G. on August 5, 2014
As many may know, Pennsylvania is known as "the keystone state." A keystone is the architectural piece at the crown of a vault or arch and marks it's apex locking the other pieces into position. This makes a keystone very important structurally. Today, It is my privilege to introduce Betty Cessna, a hybridizer from central PA., who is a keystone to hybridizing in the strep world.
