    I bought a plant of this mini episcia about 8 months ago. It has grown slowly, mostly because it won't get nearly the size of my regular ones. A month ago it started blooming small red flowers against its pointed 1-inch silvery leaves for a beautiful combination. At this time the 5-inch plant has started branching out with stolons in 3 directions for a cute but small hanging plant. It gets the same 10+ hours of combined natural then artificial light as my others. I also keep its soil evenly moist at all times and it's loving it.
