Easy Method to Grow & Propagate Episcia - Tutorial

This was commonly known as Flame Violets which is much hardier than violets itself, both share the same genes - Gesneriaceae. I was ambitious to start a collection on this genes as I thought Episcias were easy and perhaps level up my challenge to another level. To my disappointment - it was not as easy as I thought. 

Here I had found the best method of how to propagate them as to consider this to be 100% success rate where the plants don't wither or dies rotten.

Basically I'm using coconut husk chips together with sphagnum moss & perlite as a propagation medium to encourage the roots to grow. Also I keep it in a closed lid container to ensure good humidity factor. 

I hope this Step by Step Tutorial Helps and give more information on propagating these episcia. If you have an queries, do put your questions on the comment below.

I will update the status of these plants in this closed container for the growth progress.
