Quick Care Tips: Episcia Collection-Part 2

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.

 Regardless, I'm sharing my years of experience with this plant - truly my love-hate relationship plant as they appear to almost to die and revert back to healthy again and at times, the reverse happens like in a cycle.

 Tip: If you are planning to grow them on ground - do layer them together in between pebbles and stones and place at the corner like drainside area where the humidity is strong. Also they thrive in bright indirect shaded area - as these require such conditions to thrive.
