I was shocked when I saw xGloxinistema Pirate's Skywalker grown by Mr. Sua who lives in Singapore. Because his plant is quite huge than I've ever seen. Mr. Sua growed it from a rhizome since last October and these pictures were taken in this April when I visited his place.
In Taiwan, we have cooler autumn and winter, therefore rhizomatous Gesneriads normally go into dormancy when temp. drops. It seems that tropical weather in Singapore leads the growing result in different way and it constantly blooms for a long period. It is good to know this plant does even well in Singapore.
