StreptOrchids (Streptocarpus hybrids)

On a window-sill on East or West

it blooms till October at its best.

Of course it also grows on the South

but when the sun shines, put the sun screen out.

StreptOrchids prefer a bit dry over wet

Nutrients aren't of high need just give some of this or that.

Are all flowers on a stem out of bloom

just cut away and throw it out of the room.

New flowers will then continue to appear

until autumn stops blooming for that year.

Then put the plant on a light and cool spot

in March it's time to bring it back and to repot.

Again this Streptocarpus will color your window at its best

normally it doesn't suffer a lot from disease or pest.

StreptOrchids are available in many colors and forms

buy a new one every year and enjoy daily how it performs.
