    INDOOR gardeners who prefer rare and exotic plants can easily grow them from seed. In fact, the en tire collection can consist of the many beautiful gesneriad relatives of the African violet. Most of the summer growing Gesneriads reach a peak bloom around autumn, and so it is with the Achimenes. Still, they are easy enough for me to dry off the pots, as I am now, for the winter, and perhaps when I repot and water them for a new season of bloom, the show might be better.

      A guide to gesneriads varieties. Just know that it's pretty and easy to grow. Rosenbaum, who began raising tropicals as a North Dallas adolescent, finds them especially easy to grow. The gesneriads are tropicals and sub tropicals. I do not suggest any gesneriads to be placed outdoors during the summer unless you have a shaded area that also can keep the rain or water from touching their foliage. Cape Primrose and Streptocarpus can do well outdoors in a shaded area and they don't mind if their foliage has water on them.
