Hi everyone, I'm new to this site, but have already developed quite anice interest.
I have a large number of Episcia varieties, but have not been able to locate Ember Lace (with color) or Chocolate Velour. Ifor anyone has or knows someone that has these varieties, and would be willing to sell or trade.
Thanks

Welcome! I hope you can find them! I used to have a large Episcia collection but they had to go when we moved overseas. How do you keep yours humid enough? Many of the species won't grow in a dry home.

Hi Plantmanager,
Thank You! so much for your reply and it is nice to meet you.
I keep the Episcia in a separate room (at least until the grandkids are older) and most are wick watered, which keeps the humidity levels higher than would normally be in open living areas.
If this is not possible or for the (I have a feeling you would love to be an "obsessed" grower like myself Smiling ), "non-obsessed" grower, placing the pots on top of a tray of pebbles that are slightly covered with water will increase the humidity around the plants.
Thumbs up Have a great day,
Sammie

Hi Sammie, yes, it's easy to be obsessed by the episcias. I always wanted each new species I saw. Watering them over trays like orchids would keep them happy. I don't have any at the moment, but I'm sure I 'need' to find some again. Rolling on the floor laughing
