*What are "Stick-tite" blooms? = The original Saintpaulia found in the hills of the Usambara Mountains in Africa, have blossoms which easily fall off when shaken. However, “Stick-tite” blooms are those that do not drop from the pedicel (blossom stem).  This is often a problem with single (5-petalled) blossoms that can fall from the pedicel even while still fresh.  Usually this is not a problem with semidouble and double blossoms.  Often blossoms that appear to be single are, in fact, semidouble blossoms where the extra petal is difficult to see.  Though genetically semidouble, these are often described as “stick-tite” single blossoms.
