Sinn. Stone's Gisele

A selected seedling of the cross between Mini Sinn. and tubiflora. Really outstanding color display among the Sinningia hybrids.

Why Mini Sinn. ?

This is to say the benefits of entering Mini Sinn. as the show plant. Please be aware of what I saw and experienced was based in Taiwan with Taiwanese miniature Sinningia hybrids.

A hybrid

- Easy Grower
We have many Gesneriads in cultivation here, the Mini Sinn. is absolutely the easiest plant with fast growing character. It grows all year around here, fast in Spring to Autumn, slowing down in Winter. It sprouts well under cool to warm growing conditions. Mini Sinn. can be in full bloom shortly after germination and this is very good point to control our growing milestone according to the show schedule.

- Floriferous Character
Despite of the fast growth, it's also easy to groom the Mini Sinn. In fact, this fantastic plant is born for show. Give enough fertilizer and light, a crown of Mini Sinn. can carry more than 10 blooms simultaneously ... and even more. Sometimes we only need to keep 5 or 6 large-sized flowers in bloom, the plant can be seen as if it's full of flowers. A good trick. :-)


Pirate's Stormy Night


- Travel With Ease
Mini Sinn. is usually short, small and compact, people can take many on the go but avoid the hassle of packaging. Just need necessary protection to ensure Mini Sinn. will not be squeezed by outside pressure during travelling. If you prefer to have a delightful trip but you are not good at packing the plant, the Mini Sinn. should be the decent companion.

- Colorful Options
Taiwanese growers have released many Mini Sinn. hybrids over years, we have the KC's, HCY's and AN's series as the pioneer hybrids ... then continued with the KJ's, Jung's, Pirate's, Nora's, Formosa, Isa's, Stone's, Windsor's and Gautier's ...etc. The new hybrids are still increasing, it seems we Taiwanese are partial to Mini Sinn. :-) Since many enthusiasts offer different type of Mini Sinn. with colorful option, growing Mini Sinn. is not boring ... never get to the end of collection.

- What Else ?
You may share the cutting crown to your friends after the show, then go home with a bag of small potatoes/tubers ... you happy and friends happy. :-)
