Growing Season

Finally, I have all my Smithiantha potted ... congratulation ! The season is just right for Sinningia ... warm in the daytime ... cool at night. I did not take care of them at all, they just bloom by their own way. See the weed in the pot.  XD

No more air conditioner ...

Rainy night and it's cool. Finally no more air conditioner is required for sleep.

Mid-September

The summer vacation comes to the end ? I hope so and I have a lot to prepare for the planting season.

Codonoboea sp. 'AG10-3'

In fact , I owned this cute plant a few years ago but I did not successfully grow it ... so sad. It is from the peninsula Malaysia where is home of many unusual Gesneriads. The flower is scented according to the introduction. The photos are courtesy of Francis Sua.

Summer Gesneriad

Episcia is the only one plant that I don't have to take care too much in this summer. But I need to re-pot them because they prefer new planting materials.

Sinn. HCY's Fox Tail

I have to confess that I did not grow it well ... Obviously it's a calyx double hybrid based on Sinningia lineata. It could be better as long as I offer bigger pot and fertilizer.

Sinningia Bananas Foster & sellovii

Absolutely made for summer !!!
They are big and strong plants, should be the easiest Sinningia for the growers. They are weed, not fine and delicate.  :-)

Miniature Sinningia Complex

Although the hybridization history of miniature Sinningia is not long as other commercial plants, the color variation still expands.  Easy to flower, Easy to pollinate, Easy to pod ... these 3 easy things make the hybridization of mini Sinningia easier.

From the simple patterns to complicate color combination, the complex of ancient heritage shows how it rules the hereditary appearance. It is a bit difficult to tell what is the suitable parent plants if we don't look for significant results. So which one do you want ? Beautiful complex or creative complex ?

Oh ... Primulina 'Matsumushi' shows off

This miniature Primulina blooms in the beginning of summer. A Japanese hybrid that I got it about 2 years ago.

Summer Summer Summer

My Sinningia can't bear the heat ... it's a contradiction that Sinningia grows in summer but the flowers are always withered during the daytime due to the high temperature in my greenhouse.

Summer is coming

Episcia is happy but Kohleria has to pass through this tough period as well as human beings.  XD

Squat Smithiantha

'Designer's Tropical Fish' is a squat Smithiantha hybrid, max. around 12 inches in total, the plant is compact and the flowers are dense. Since I was aware of the plant height of Smithiantha is sometimes a problem in cultivation, that's why I have some crosses which the plant height is considered as the target character.

New creation of Jung's Micro Sinningia

By giving his hybrids the alpha name of Jung's , these 3 new baby plants are the latest creation of Mr. JJ Wu. The flower size is the highlight of these new plants, between 1.8mm~2.2mm in diameter which is much larger than traditional micro Sinningia. Thanks for his passion of doing hybrids of Sinningia.

Smithiantha remains

Since it's a cool spring, the flowers remain in good condition. I have received a few inquiries about the purchase of rhizomes, but I am not sure what will be the harvest. The sale will be happened as long as the rhizomes are qualified.
