I used to have this Kohleria cultivar but it died subsequently. Now I am happy I have it again.

From the Gesneriaceae Family that includes the more common African Violet and Episcia, this is a less known plant locally. Under the right conditions, it can produce lots of flowers.

In fact, it appears to be very suitable indoors near window sills where they can receive more light. However, the leaves do get damaged easily when it does not get enough water to support its very herbaceous stems and leaves.

Hopefully I can grow mine into a big potted plant.
