Streptocarpus rexii, also known as the Cape Primrose, is a popular houseplant native to South Africa. It is prized for its beautiful, trumpet-shaped flowers and attractive foliage. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to grow and care for your Streptocarpus rexii plant.


  1. Location: Streptocarpus rexii prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause leaf burn.
  2. Soil: Use well-draining, fertile potting mix. A mix of equal parts peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite is ideal.
  3. Pot: Select a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. A pot slightly larger than the root system is suitable.


  1. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again.
  2. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65°F and 75°F (18°C and 24°C). Avoid exposure to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
  3. Humidity: Streptocarpus rexii prefers moderate humidity levels, around 50-60%. Place a humidifier or a pebble tray filled with water nearby to maintain humidity.
  4. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season, and reduce to once a month during winter.


  1. Pruning: Remove dead or yellowing leaves and spent flowers to encourage new growth.
  2. Pest control: Inspect the plant regularly for common pests like aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil to treat infestations.
  3. Repotting: Repot your Streptocarpus rexii every 2-3 years, or when the plant outgrows its pot. Use fresh potting mix to encourage healthy growth.


  1. Aesthetic appeal: Streptocarpus rexii adds a splash of color to your indoor space with its vibrant flowers and lush foliage.
  2. Air purification: Like many houseplants, Streptocarpus rexii helps improve indoor air quality by filtering out pollutants.
  3. Low maintenance: This plant is relatively easy to care for, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners.
