    Love, love, love the ‘Chocolate Velour’! He would fit in nicely with all my fuzzy Kalanchoes…I’ll be on the lookout for that one! The others are great too!

    • Andrew says:

      Just keep them potted separately! Episcias can’t dry out even for a moment or they’ll fall apart. I agree though it’d make a great compliment to many of the fuzzy Kalanchoes.
