I have a new plant I know nothing about . Hope you can help with the name and what to do with it. LOL
Your plant is a Gloxinia. Here are some care tips on how to care for Gloxinias.
Light: Bright, indirect light but no direct sun.
Water: Keep soil moist but not soggy while the plant blooms and produces new leaves.
Humidity: Gloxiias like high humidity, but do not mist the plant. Misting encourages plant diseases. Use a wet pebble tray or place a humidifier near by. You can read about humidity on the Glossary of the website
Temperature: Average household temperature is fine. Indoors during the winter, the air is quite dry, so remember to increase humididty.
Soil: Gloxinias like a slightly acidic soil (like a gardenia). I water mine with leftover tea.
fertilizerPlants need fertilizer only when they are actively growing. Slow growing plants in low light require very little plant food. Too much fertilizer is worse than not enough. Most plants prefer a water soluble plant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. Plants that are in bloom or dormant should not be fertilized. Houseplant food contains nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). A fertilizer containing these elements in equal proportion is considered a balanced plant food. Nitrogen helps in photosynthesis and encourages the growth of leaves and stems. Potassium and phosphorus also help in photosynthesis and aid in root and flower development. Most fertilizers have trace elements of other minerals that are lacking in the soil but are necessary for good plant growth. Fertilizers have a high salt content. If a plant is not producing new leaves and doesn’t absorb the fertilizer, salts build up in the soil. These salts can burn the roots, discolor the leaves, and cause new growth to be small.: Feed your Gloxinia only when it is growing and always dilute the plant food to 1/2 the recommended strength. African Violet plant food works well.
