Cool, I've just read about the hybridizing of species of sinningia! It is very interesting.

Oh really, in which issue. :) I've ordered lot of Sinningia species seeds and it would be good for me to read it. I had time to look only in a few of them.

LIMITED: only 2 days left
The Gesneriad Society offers and a booklet How to Know and Grow Gesneriads
http://www.gesneriadsociety.org/docs/Kn ... dendum.pdf

I've download it and it seems interesting, I would read it for sure when i have more time.

Botan, it is in the January 2013 issue, page 2:
http://www.gesneriadsociety.org/gleanin ... 013.01.pdf

"Adventures in Hybridizing for Peloric Sinningias" by Ruth Coulson (Balcolyn, Australia)
She worked with species like S. cardinalis, iarae, glazioviana and globulosa. Interesting results!

Botan, I cannot wait for your experience and results! I am sure you will succeed in this field of "new" in the gesneriads world. :)

Oh that Sinningia schiffneri looks stunning, even though it has small flowers.
Maybe for Europe is kind of "new field", except Russia with their beautiful Sinningia speciosa hybrids but what I've seen in the internet there is a LOT of experience outside.
Thank you for showing it to me, but it turns out that it wasn't very helpful, because I have in mind other species, even in a different clade from those in the article. And when we began speaking for Sinningias... this is the ultimate site for them:
http://www.burwur.net/sinns/sinns.htm
I highly recommend it!

Here is one with basic information for all or at least most of the gesneriads genera:

A seed vendor from Brazil

Probably you all know Mauro Peixoto, almost all my seeds are from him.

Great webpage - the one from Mauro Peixoto happy03: How do you buy his seeds? Send an email to him or does he have a shop?

Well it's not the typical online shop. He has a list with seeds online which he updates, and if you liked something you must send him an email.

Thank you Botan for this quick reply - now I see the correct page :) I am still a bit hesitating to try with seeds but the selection of Mauro is really tempting ;)

Well maybe is better to wait mine to see what will happen, although I'm not the norm that you must follow. :mrgreen:
If someone will order from there, please check this Sinningia speciosa 'Regina 'Seidel' I have seeds from the other 3 reginas, and we can swap. :)
