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. He’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.

I don't grow gesneriads, but I do admire them. Your article made me understand how wonderful and exciting hybridizing must be.

Interesting article to read. I don't grow Streptocarpus either, but sure was exciting to see what has been accomplished by serious breeders.

Thanks for the interesting information! I wanted to try streps, but after killing a couple of african violets, I decided not to. I love them, but just don't have the right conditions for them in my drafty basement apartment.
