Streptocarpus. Well, not everything in the greenhouse is an orchid. Here's a beautiful Streptocarpus hybrid. These are native to Africa and Madagascar where they are found on shady hillsides. They are also known as Cape Primrose. They are in the Gesneriad family and respond well to culture similar to African violets.
