Could it be a Streptocarpella?

Looks very like Streptocarpus glandulosissima to me. What are the leaves like?

I've searched the net and none of the flowers are the same. the bend of the flower is on them all and isnt a fault just on these 2. I'll photograph the leaves tomorrow.

I had a Streptocarpus that was just a tad different from the standard picture shown, but turned out to be one.

sorry that isnt it either. tomorrow I'll photograph the whole plant and the leaves.

none of the plants suggested so far have flowers with the 90* bend.

I got mine from Dibley's originally. Don't know if they have a website, but they specialise in this family. Haven't time to look now, sorry.

Hi Mark,
have you posted a picture of the leaves yet?
I'd also say your plant is a Streptocarpella - the flower is almost identical to mine, including the 90* angle between the petiole and the flower.
Do you need a picture?
maddy :-)

Mark,
Check out Rob's Violet Barn, they specialize in gesneriads,
great descriptions of streptocarpella there.

Hi BJ,
I couldn't find any Streptocarpella on that site. Don't mix up Streptocarpus and Streptocarpella, they are different genera and have quite a different growth habit, too.
Mark, I will go and take a picture of mine now. I'll mail you shortly.
