This week on We Dig Plants, Alice Marcus Krieg and Carmen Devito are talking gesneriads with artist and Gesneriad Society member Bruce Boyd! Tune into this program to hear Bruce give some tips on growing gesneriads at home. What watering methods work best for plants like African Violets, and what lighting conditions cause gesneriads to thrive? Hear what types of fertilizers Bruce uses for his indoor gesneriad garden. What are some of Bruce’s ideal gesneriads that he finds hard to grow? Hear how you can implement episcias in terrariums, and learn why many gesneriads do not need much soil. Today’s program has been sponsored by Fairway Market. Music by Pamela Royal.
“Episcias are tricky to grow. I find they do better enclosed. I will grow them inside of deli containers. They thrive on humidity… I recommend them for terrariums.” [30:00]
