Im also a Gesneriadaholic. But my main focus are Kohleria, Smithiantha, Gloxinia (the true genus), Seemannia and things alike. I also grow Rhytidophyllum, Gesneria, Vanhouttea, Hypocyrta, Unifoliate Streptocarpus, Nemathanthus and a few Columnea (Dalbergaria).

One of the genera im looking for are Paradrymonia, do you grow these Dennis?

I started growing Sinningia species (and hybrids) about 15 months ago.
My experience is very similar to Janos'.  I have lost plants to pests
and/or neglect... but they resprout from the tubers.

I'm growing Sinningia speciosa, S. tubiflora, S. sellovii, S.
eumorpha, S. cardinalis, S. sceptrum, and a few others... In fact I
should have S. cardinalis seed for the PBS BX soon.

Some of my plants I acquired from the PBS BX.  Others I obtained
through Gesneriad Society events.  (I'm growing lots of other
gesneriads too... mostly South American species.)

I really love the hairy fuzzy Sinningias but I'm not growing many of those yet.
