Episcia Collection - Adam's Rib

This suppose to be a hardy plant but I was unable to cultivate it to make few more spares from this. I had bought this from an online contact which proved to be challenging due to lack of communication as the vendor appeared to be uncooperative. 

I manage to purchase this after the second round when the first delivery was a failure (the plants he provided had withered before passing to me) Anyway, I'm not planning to purchase any of these using online method as I prefer to inspect the plant first before purchasing them.

Coming back to this particular cultivar, Adam's Rib has a thin mid-rib and have a slight light green coloration on it's veins. The rest of the leaves has bronze appearance similar to Suomi. The flower blooms in red.

I had hard time cultivating this one and had succumb to root rot, withered and died. I might try again when opportunity comes if I chance to meet this one again in any local nurseries here.
