|Thanks starlight! I had been growing AV's in my workplace office. ( I worked part-time as a secretary) The winter the office was too cool for the AV's and they sulked. I was always buying on eBay and always saw streps listed. So I knew about them as I read about Gesneriads all the time and decided to give them a try.
I had a bakers rack 3' away from a north window and was not sure if they would get enough light. So I decided to line the shelves and the back of the rack with aluminum foil to help reflect the light. Well after buying a few and see them grow and bloom so quickly in my conditions I was hooked! Threw out every AV and have been growing streps for the past 6 yrs.
