How to get this small streptocarpus to flower more?

Posted: 01/07/2016 at 22:15

I grow streptocarpus in the greenhouse but you can grow them in the house ok, they like it to be light but not direct sunlight.

they should be planted in a multi purpose compost with added grit, they don't like it too wet and you should only water when the leaves start to droop a little also try not to get water on the leaves.

I must admit the plant in your picture is over potted a little and the plant is not looking too healthy but it might pick up, I think if it was mine I would cut the flowers off so giving the plant time to recover without using energy making flowers.

If it has spines on the leaves and stem it is proberly a teasel, the birds love the seeds but beware it does like scattering them about.

What is this plant?? Has never flowered.

It looks like Monarda to me, common name bergamot. It does tend to get mildew and prefrers neutral to alkaline soil.. Smells quite strongly when touched , when it flowers ( and it's a bit early yet ) the flowers are not fragrant .
