Celene, I believe there was an African Violet and Gesneriads Forum at the beginning of ATP but not many people posted there so it was discontinued. I see now that many folks have been chatting about and posting photo's of their Gessies on the House Plant Forum so maybe it's time we did indeed have a forum specifically for Gesneriads. Although I don't grow many Gessies anymore, I'd be interested!

I don't know if you remember, I am mostly an episcia person with a few other odds and sods thrown in. Few AV's. I know that's not hte typical gessie fan.

Some are easier than others, Windigo. Start off with some easy-peasy confidence builders Smiling

If enough interest is generated I'm sure @Dave would implement a Gesneriad Forum!
