|Reichsteinaria (Sinningia) leucotricha, native to Brazil, forms a beautiful specimen with obovate leaves densely covered with shimmery silvery hairs. Slowly grows to form large "caudex", making it a highly desirable collector's specimen. Beautiful delicate apricot tubular flowers. In habitat, is found growing on cliffs near waterfalls. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright, filtered light with ample airflow. Drench thoroughly when soil is dry. If possible, it is preferable to not allow the soil mass to dry out completely. Protect from frost. Member of the Gesneriaceae family. Harold Emery Moore gave it it's name in 1973. It grows in well-drained soil some water and lots of sun. The caudex will grow to 30 centimetres. The flowers are red and it can also be reproduced by cuttings from the caudex. I have some sinningias that are between 6-"10" wide.|
|The leaves are quite beautiful and the caudex continues to grow larger and more interesting.|
|This is a sinningia tubiflora which is similar to the sinningia leucotricha above. The sinningia leucotricha has a flatter more hairy caudex.|
