Episcia Teddy Bear

Episcia Teddy Bear

Just wanted every one to see the flowers on this episcia. Isn’t it just gorgeous. I know the flower looks like the flower on lil lemon. The difference is the leaves. The leaves on this episcia are more of a bronze velvety texture with a light green center. This episcia has been growing on my patio. Episcias like very warm temperatures. I have been reading a lot of information on episcias and I still read that episcias are hard to grow. I use to think that also; but I finally decided to try growing them outside in the summer, instead of inside under lights. I still grow them inside in the winter; they hate cold temperatures.
