MEDIUM WATER REQUIREMENTS
A stemless perennial with a rosette of velvety leaves with a quilted appearance. It bears 1-6 funnel-shaped flowers which are carried on slender stalks. The tubular base of the flower is straight, cylindrical and pale blue or white. The 2-lipped flowers are pale blue with darker streaks on the lower lip. 40 – 75mm long.
Streptocarpus rexii has the ability to reduce leaf size, or wilt severely during unfavourable conditions, thus reducing stress and water loss, from which they recover completely when favourable conditions return.
