They're beautiful! Such a vibrant blue.

Well done!

Whoa. Those flowers are seriously flowery. I am jealous. All my flowers are of the stuffed variety, with the happy faces. Also awesome, but very different.

Is this an orchid? How much light does it need?

Pony, no it's not an orchid. Its closer to a violet? I only know it as Streptocarpus, I don't know another name. Dead simple to keep. needs neglecting really! Too much love will kill it. Mine live in a North East facing window so they get plenty of morning light and they flower continually for about eight months of the year. They like to dry out between waterings and only enjoy food every few weeks or so. They are also very cheap to buy! Get some!! Pippa x
