I sowed Sinningia aghensis seed in September 2005 in a closed plastic  
deli container that I have kept on a windowsill.  I just checked it,  
and there is one small plant with half a dozen leaves that have a  
heart-shaped top, but a round bottom.  There are no hairs noticeable,  
and the leaves are thin and green.  Each leaf comes from the same  
point in the soil, but I don't want to disturb it to see if a tuber  
is forming.

Is this what a seedling should look like?

At what point will it need a lot of sun?  I'm not sure where I can  
put it to get that - I had to clear all the moss that had covered the  
soil to see this seedling.
