Dear All, I have bought a white flowered Gloxinia a few weeks ago, unfortunately it had root rot, and eventually the plant died. I just wanted to throw it away, when I checked if the soil is dried out, and I found a tuber about an inch across. That is the second time this plant surprises me. About 10 years ago I got a Gloxinia and we accidenatlly broke off the stem from the roots. I put the flowering shoot in potting soil and left it in our garage. The plant also wilted and just after the first frost I saw it grow a tuber in the soil, but the frost killed it. So wow again! This plant really wants to live :) Bye, Janos Z5a, Hungary -- Protect the environment!
