    Default Stelis sp.

    Stelis don't tend to be all that showy, but this one is particularly . . . non-spectacular. It's definitely cute and cheery though!

    It's in a 2" pot. I'll try to get a close-up sometime when it's brighter out.

    Another thing we have in common. I love these guys/gals. I just wish so many of the ones on the market weren't called Stelis sp. I WANT NAMES!!

    I'm with you, Kev. I wouldn't have bought this one if it weren't labeled 'Stelis atropurpurea'. Problem is, it doesn't seem to be purple. So either it's an atropurpurea alba . . . or it's a sp. I think the latter.

    Ok, here's a close-up:

    If you really want to see flower detail, go here:

    And here's the whole plant, freshly repotted into a spacious new 3" pot:
