Looking for bright rose color ? this is the one. From the seedling of An's Queen Sofia x Susan. When need to enhance the vividness of the color, An's Queen Sofia is a good choice.
A compact and neat foliage offers a nice base for showing off the flowers. On the other hand, it might be a big pity that a stunning flower stands on the irregular foliage. For me, to have a nice foliage is even more important than to get the beautiful flower. Moreover, the miniature Sinningia with double type flower strongly requires the tidy plant as usually their foliage twists. (Courtesy of Mr. Little Stone who grows these plants for photography)
The trial cross between Diastema and Gloxiniopsis, was not meant to get special result. I got 3 plants from the seeds and nearly the first bloom has flower size 90% equal to Gloxiniopsis racemosa but wider face than its pollen plant. The plant is smaller like its seed parent. Need to spend more time to estimate it for further details. Anyway, always good to see a proportional hybrid from the cross between generas.
