Description

    • Sow Gloxinia seeds to produce a beautiful mixture of red, blue, and white blooms. These compact Gloxinia plants blossom four to six months after sowing. They will flower for about 2 months, go dormant for about 2 months, and then begin growing again and start flowering.
    • Grows as a perennial in USDA zones 5 – 8 only reaching a height of 10 inches.
    • Gloxinias make a great house plant, giving wonderful, colorful blooms! Sinningia Speciosa is often referred to as Florist’s Gloxinia or Brazilian Gloxinia.
    • Florist’s Gloxinia care includes avoiding watering the crown of the plant as this might cause the plant to rot, and use water that is at room temperature for watering. The Brazilian Gloxinia plant needs lots of light, but no direct light. Gloxinias do best in temperatures around 65 – 75F degrees, especially when they are blooming. After blooming, keep watering to a minimum and don’t fertilize.
    • Gloxina seeds are a bit tricky to germinate and do best indoors and under lights. Do not cover the flower seeds after sowing since they need light to germinate. Sinningia Speciosa seeds should germinate in about 3 weeks at 70 – 75F degrees. Soil should be kept uniformly moist, but do not keep it saturated. Seeding Rate: 4 seeds per plant
