I received some cuttings of this plant and they were marked Streptocarpella Concord Blue, when I put it in my list at All Things Plants, they said it was a streptocarpus saxorum, I can see the difference in the plant, and hope these cuttings survive. They are lovely. I would like to look at more of them to see them and how they are propagated. I need some links from you all if you have any. Thanks.

JB, it's the same thing, some even call it a false African Violet. I have that plant and they are good to put in hanging baskets. Very easy to root the cuttings and if mine start looking leggy, I pinch them back.

I have a picture of it, I was wondering if there was someone here on @stepbystrep list who raised them. They are lovely plants. I was curious to talk to someone who propagated them. It looks like a trailing AV for sure. But I am sure they take more water than AVs. Just looking for some input from other owners of this plant.
