According to the Gesneriad Society, the gesneriad family contains over 2,500 species of plants. Most gesneriads are from tropical and subtropical regions and are often found growing in humus-filled depressions or rock crevices, on humus-covered forest floors or epiphytically on tree branches.
The best-known member of the gesneriad family is the African Violet.
