Mini-Sinningias are still ok with the summer in Taiwan.
Making cross with existing beautiful Mini-Sinningia is a shortcut, but sometimes you get something common because most beautiful parents can easily breed beautiful offsprings as similar as the parents, but if you are looking for new creation ... you will not be satisfied with just beautiful but common stuff. So the value of hybridization is another story .....
It has been 4 years since the first Pirate's Mini-Sinningia seedlings bloomed. With the luck, we got many new varieties that are pleasing to the eyes and the nice proportion between flower/foliage is the essence of the Pirate's. Happy Hybridizing !!!
