Primulina sp. SEH#

A collection from Steve Hootman of this Asian species which we are very pleased to offer. The leaves have incredible substance to them - very succulent and get some good size to them as well. We call it "that cabbage gesneriad" and it puts on a show with its pink flowers. It enjoys shade as too much light reddens up the leaves which wouldn't be such a bad thing if you hit the sweet spot on light intensity. This looks plenty hardy if it doesn't get close to 32F!
