Streptocarpus porphyrostachys is a relatively small-growing unifoliate species, which can be accommodated in a 4″ pot or smaller. The single leaf is typically grayish green, in some plants more gray than in others. It produces a very nice set of beautiful dark blue/purple flowers.  Plants are normally monocarpic, and usually die after fruiting.
