over 3cm in diameter and flat-opened flower, clear-cut colors and patterns ... especially this photo was taken during HOT SUMMER in Taiwan, a pretty and well-developped miniature Sinningia.
A seedling between miniature Sinningia and Sinn. tubiflora. Coming with the most popular color combination of mini-sinn. , it's really adorable. It was put in 2 inches pot, now it is moved to 4 inches pot for next sprouts. More blooms are surely expected.
After years, when checking the new bloom of Mini-Sinningia seedlings, the most comment comes out with " they look ok but not outstanding ". I've picked out many seedlings so far but I'm always looking for a little difference within current flower patterns. It could be a rare color or small diversity to impress people at the first sight. Therefore, to think about this issue before making cross will increase the percentage of getting unusual bloom. We can't count on beginer's luck for always. :-)
