I have had this plant for many years, it bloomed about 7 years ago and once done blooming, I repotted it and just about killed it.Â It has finally started to bloom again, but I have not idea what it is or how to take care of it properly.Â If you could identify provide me with information on it that would be great.Â Cindy
Plant Expert Reply:
Ever see someone you know and their name just won't come to mind. It is very frustrating. Well this plant is creating the same frustration.Â I seen it before and the name just won't come to me.Â I am confident that it is in the Gesneriaceae family, but as to the genus and species I am stumped.Â Possible genus that come to mind are Aeschynanthus, Columnea, Gloxinia, Nemathanthus and even Sinningia.
Most of these plants need bright light, moist but well-drained soil and warm humid environments.
I wish I could be more specific.Â An up-close picture of the blooms and leaves might help.
