Gloxinia's blooms

boothbay(7)June 17, 2014

I've had great success all these years growing them indoors. The one problem is that the blooms don't last very long..perhaps 3 days and then they go south. Never really did any research, so I do not know if this is typical...anyone????

I think temperature is the deciding factor. With temps in the mid 70's & over, blossoms don't last as long as a plant growing in cooler conditions. My best blooms occur when the plant room is struggling to maintain a 70 degree day.
