S. 'Rio das Pedras' out in the open

mwedzi(chicago)September 29, 2005

I've been growing this Sinningia uncovered since about May. It looks okay, could look better, but I haven't been caring for it much and it hasn't gotten much light. Now it's in my apt. where I don't have A/C and keep the windows open, so it's fairly humid. At least 40% and up to 65%. For 3 months of the summer it grew far away from a window in a place with A/C. Thank goodness for tubers and seeds, is all I can say. It keeps going, though.

Are they completely out? or "out" as in no lid?
I usually grow mine with no lid - or sometimes with lid but lower humidity than the prop domes. I'd be interested if you've kept them happy enough completely out in the open.

love tubers.

I'm not sure what you mean by completely out. They are in a little solo cup with no lid or covering. They are just out like my african violets. I won't say I've kept them completely happy, but I didn't keep any of my plants completely happy over the summer. They are okay, though.
