Gesneriads & the plant list.

I made some serious progress on the plant list today. I managed to photograph all Gesneriads on the main floor and tag unknown plants with “NOID ####” tags (not that many actually).

I’ll be typing up those plants tomorrow and starting to work through the pictures. As they bloom of course I’ll have to update things and check the IDs that I do have but it’s some definite progress.

I counted:

24 Saintpaulia
8 Streptocarpus
6 Chirita
3 Kohleria
2 Petrocosmea

Of these there were only 9 NOID African Violets, 1 NOID Strep (which is a start from a leaf of another plant we have/had), and 1 Chirita which is sort of questionable (there are two labels on the pot, should be very easy to figure out once it grows more).

Maybe not so many upstairs and none in the basement. I think actually this plant list should be able to be “finished” fairly soon.

    I had to look up Petrocosmea to see what it was. Now you've got me interested in something new. ^_^You have an impressive collection of plants! My passion in life is gardening, and I especially love orchids. Recent illnesses suffered by both of my parents along with nagging health problems of my own have seriously curtailed my gardening activities over the past 1.5 years. I hope to get busy again someday soon.
