Sinningia conspicua

Sinningia conspicua

Postby Valkiria » March 7th, 2013, 3:21 pm

The only species of Sinningia I have till now.

It is a big species, grows almost 30 cm, with yellow flowers and green hairy leaves.
The most pleasant think is that it smells very good, a little bit of lemon and lime.

Diana, it's so lovely! Does it take a long time to grow a plant like that?

This one has grown so much in one year, more precisely, one growing season. From April to November.

How do you grow them so compact? If you see the tuber that you send me you will get scared...long and leggy. :?
By the way when it must go to dormancy?

This one grew directly in the sunlight from end of February when I have replanted the tuber. A great amount of light is the most important think for this one in order to keep it compact.

These days, as the sunlight hours are decreasing each day, it is already getting older and bigger, it is like a big bush. :)

I put mine to dormancy last year in early December, cutting some parts of the plant and putting them to make roots (one of which went to you).
By putting to dormancy I mean cutting green parts and watering very little, but I kept it on the window, and in February it decided to wake up.
