Streptocarpus thrive in low light conditions. They are known for the ability to bloom in low light conditions. These do best grown in light shade or partial sun but not direct southern sunlight. They will do best if kept in a north or east-facing window. If they are grown in low light conditions, the leaves will be deep green. If they get too much light the leaves will turn yellowish green.

This plant will tolerate dry conditions. Allow the potting mix to dry completely between waterings and then saturate completely. Do not allow pot to sit in water. Also, do not water the leaves especially with cold water. This will stain the leaves.

Fertilize cautiously. Fertilize intermittently with a half-strength, balanced fertilizer. When watering allow water to run out of the bottom of the pot to decrease the chance of salt build up.
