Hello!!

This is a cross between Chirita linearifolia and Chirita sinensis. This is the first to bloom in spring, in my home.

What do you mean when you say it's not a mini...

I have bought him 3 years ago at Dibleys nursery. I find Chirita more tolerant with bad growing conditions than Saintpaulia or Streptocarpus.

I mean they grow relatively big. I also find them very easy to care. My C. tamiana is blooming almost continuously.

Ok!!

My 'Erika' is not the biggest Chirita I have. The biggest is Chirita flavimaculata, it's very large!!
