Good morning,
    I grew a number of Sinningia tubiflora from seed from the BX.  They were 
propagated in my all season greenhouse .  They thrived vegetatively and 
offset copiously.  None bloomed neither did I experience the heights 
described recently.  Most of the tubers were donated to the BX this year. 
Since, I have learned they need cold to bloom and are reported to be hardy 
in USDA 7.  Thus, no more coddling and cosseting--out they go.

Best, Joyce Miller, Gresham, OR USDA Zone 7 where we have broken the record 
for June average rainfall and it is barely past the mid-month.
