Miscellaneous gesneriads  that I grow
Achimenes are a group of rhizomatous plants from the tropics.  The
come in a wide variety of colors, yellow, white, purple, wine reds, etc..  I
grow about 20 varieties including several species.  They were grown
many years ago by our grandmothers, but fell out of favor as other new
plants came along.  But if you ever see a basket of them, you will want
them.
Aeschynanthus
Columnea  semi-upright and vining plants with large colorful
flowers. Easy to grow.
Episcia
Gloxinella lindeniana - Gloxinella has just one species, Gloxinella
lindeniana
, also known as Gloxinia lindeniana and Kohleria lindeniana.
A really attractive little plant that grows from a rhizome.  It has beautiful
leaves, green with brown overlays and almost white veins, then it has
nice little bloom that is lavender and white.  Stays fairly small, I keep
mine in a 2.5" pot.
Nematanthus - most people recognize these as the Goldfish
plants.  I have two of the ones considered goldfish, but like
these larger ones better.
Smithiantha - The temple bells, great plants with large
umbels of flowers in a wide range of colors.
Seemannia  large robust plants
