Sinningia guttata

I was wondering to post or not to post the seeds pictures before the germination, but I thought that they can be useful to someone who want to know the size and the shape, and even if I can't show some seedling someone after me will so let's start with S. guttata
What is interesting about it is that the blossoms have positive phototropism and also because it is from the speciosa group it is more likely the spots on the modern florist gloxinias to have origins from this species.

Well they aren't quite good but my camera sucks, and her master even more. :mrgreen:
I hope they are informative. :)

I am looking forward for you, Botan, to see some of your future hybridizing of this ona with good smell to over mini-sinningias to continue the good-smell trait. :)

I am happy for you, Botan!
I'd like one day you can keep some species of sinningia for me.
We have just several of them, here, in Romania.
