RE: ID please?

looks like sinningia speciosa = florist gloxinia

Is it one of your seedlings?

Hi Irina

yes but the flower is only an inch across and the leaves are quite different. Yes it is one of my seedlings........

Thanks

Domeman -

I still think it is a hybrid sinningia. I do not have gloxinias in my collection, but I have several sinningias - species and hybrids - minis and micros - and the leaves are quite similar - I do not have such interesting pale green with red veins color. And the shape of the flower reminds a gloxinia. I would think if you pollinate or self-pollinate gloxinia - you will get smalls and biggies as well.

But - hope somebody else will pitch in. Let's wait

Perhaps Sinningia guttata? The leaves are a delightful pink underneath.

I think you are right. I looked once more at the S.guttata at the gesneriads.ca and on a third photo - it looks similar. May be more nitrogen and it will green up?

Hi, the leaves look odd for guttata but that's what I think you have. The flowers look just like guttata. It was quite rare and the clone in cultivation was weak and sterile. About five years ago Mauro Pexioto introduced a new seed collection, and now it is being grown by quite a few people. I don't know if it made its way to the mixed seed though.
