Product Description - DianthifloraThere are two commonly grown Alsobia species, as well as hybrid combinations of the two. Alsobia dianthiflora is a small-leaved, compact plant that produces large white frilled flowers. The second species, A. punctata, is much larger and coarser, with similar large white-frilled flowers with purple spots.
Plant CareAlsobias require warmth and humidity to grow well. They do not tolerate cool temperatures or dry conditions, and must be kept moist. Some cultivars require a protected growing environment, although many growers do well with most cultivars in windows or on open shelves under lights. Easily grown under artificial or natural light, most Alsobia are ready bloomers all year-round. Let its soil dry between waterings. Keep warm - never below 70°F. Feed monthly with 20-20-20 fertilizer when soil is moist.

A beautiful plant - it is easy to propagate from the little plantlettes that form on the runners... mine would bloom profusely. I had it in Montana in a home heated with a wood stove in winter.
