I wonder if you could take leaf cuttings of this one, like an African violet(Saintpaulia).

Excellently grown, Michael!

Yes you can,I have a pot full of rooted leaf cuttings but won't pot them on until spring.

A lovely pot of gesnerads, Michael.  Here is another one I like - Tecomeria - that came and went for me.  Sure hope to find it again on the NARGs seed list.  Fran

Very impressive, Michael!
I have been trying some Gesneriads outside but they have never flowered, partly due to snails and possibly slugs (so far I have only found snails on them) munching the new growth. The first picture (taken today) shows that they haven't gone hibernating yet!
