Sinningia sowing

Thu, 10 Jul 2008 13:03:37 PDT
hi joyce,

i don't know what i can tell you since i grow everything indoors in a non-AC appartment in the jungle of new york.  because Sinningia and gesneriad seed is so small, it can be frustrating to work with.  i sow a small portion in a small 2" pot and keep it enclosed in an iced-coffee plastic cup.  if you have too much moss growing over, it's obviously a humidity issue?  in the wild, we have seen many seedlings growing on moss-covered rocks, so they obviously can live together...  

i was wondering if people have had some success or failure with the Sinningia seed i have sent dell.  mostly, seed can be kept viable for many years in the fridge, and some of the seed i sent him is a bit old.  just wondering if anyone has had no luck whatsoever.

for those interested, the Gesneriad Society just held its convention and there's a slide show at this website:

as you know, many genera in the family are tuberous/rhizomatous.
