Does "Renia" Streptocarpus houseplant require warm temperatures? Say 75 degrees ++F?
I have been growing a purchased small plant for several months, in a cool indoor location (approx. 55 to 70 degrees F), where all my other Streps grow vigorously, and "Renia" barely grows from week to week, but is growing. It gets same care as other Streps.

Our database shows Cape Primrose (Streptocarpus 'Renia') as a warm grower.

It has the same temperature requirements as your other Streps. The lack of growth lies elsewhere.
