Sinningia piresiana have a soft, quilted look to their foliage, with a halo of fine hairs. Flowers are pink with spots on the outside and inside. They have pretty, fuzzy foliage to enjoy, and can produce surprising numbers of flowers! (note: Plants are not currently in bloom, however) All my sinningias are seed grown by me in the USA, and are delivered with established tubers.

I recommend growing conditions similar to Sinningia leuchotricha. It typically has an active summer growing season, loving frequent watering but not waterlogged conditions. Use a high porosity soil mix. Pick a bright spot with at least a few hours direct sun. Reduce watering in winter to provide a rest period. They may shed their foliage during dormancy.
