@strepbystrep - I notice on eBay some of the streps listings have this sentence added to the name of the plant.
AFRICAN VIOLET KIN
Does that mean the flowers are smaller or what? Sorry to sound stupid but streps are Gesneriads aren't they? Is that what the people are trying to say? I told you I had a lot to learn.

That's what they mean Jacquie...they are from the same family. Streptocarpus, Episcia, Sinningia, SInningia Specioca, ect. all belong to the Gesneriad Family too. You will see them refer to a plant as a "kin" or "relative". Smiling

Jaquie, were you asking that question to the group strepbystrep or Dave? If it's Dave, I apologize and will remove my comments.

It also means that the auction will be posted in more than one place - under streptocarpus and African violets.

Jacquie, "African Violet Kin" is also a "signature" phrase for particular seller. In this case it is "kathystrep" seller.

That is what I thought, just found it interesting not everyone uses that term and I thought maybe it was something different about those particular plants. You are all great, thanks so much for your help. I know I will be "brillant" in no time with all the info you are giving me. Now I must try and remember it. Rolling on the floor laughing
