NOID Sinningia speciosa?
Just wanted to share some pics of my newest gesneriad. My wife and I picked this plant up for $1.40! My mother-on-law was with us when we got it and she believes it is a Gloxinia. I take this to mean florist's Gloxinia, now known as Sinningia speciosa. Can anyone tell from the pictures if this is correct? It wasn't marked at the nursery. A little about this plant. The blooms are roughly 3" in diameter, and the plant itself is about 16-18" across. The largest leaves are larger than my hand. Also, any pointers on growing this plant? I have other gesneriads including african violets, episcias, an Aeschynanthus, and a Gloxinella lindeniana. All grow well for me.
