Sonerila sp. Mauve


This is a great plant to try if you want to challenge your growing skills!  One issue alot of folks, myself included, were having, is that freshly imported plants shipped bare root, and arrived in poor condition.  The plants available here are 1+ year old, grown from either stem or leaf cutting, and their root system fills up the pot. Having an established plant makes growing them alot easier! This species likes low-medium light, ideally between 30-70FC (most commercial HO t5’s are 100+ from 14″ away), and seems tolerant of temps ranging from 60-80.  While there are others growing this species in the US, and at least one person propagating it in Europe, I’m not sure there’s anyone propagating it in the US.  Even in Borneo where it is native to, most of the plants sold are wild collected.  This plant has grown to about 4″ tall in the four or so years I’ve had it.  It is one of the smaller lobe Sonerilas.

Available plants are well rooted in 2″ pots and will be shipped meticulously in their pots.  The last photo is representative of the plants available.
