Gloxinia

Sinningia speciosa

Capable of blooming anytime during the year, regal gloxinias produce rich, colored flowers. Exclusively cultivated for indoor gardening, gloxinia will not successfully transplant outdoors. But that's just as well, because you'll enjoy its tropical blooms better inside. Growing 8-12 inches tall, the soft, fragile-looking gloxinia blooms are surrounded by large, dramatic-looking leaves. Gloxinia does best in bright, but indirect, light and enjoys temperatures of 60-75 degrees F. 

Gloxinia blooms 4-10 weeks after planting. If you are potting up a gloxinia for the first time, use a 6-inch pot with adequate drainage and place one tuber per container. The soil mixture should allow maximum drainage; a commercial African violet mixture is good. When potting, set the tuber in the soil with the round side down, and leave its tip barely above the soil. Water generously. When the first buds appear, feed with a dilute solution of liquid houseplant food.
