Frequently asked questions about Spring Flowering Gloxinia (Sinningia speciosa)

How to plant gloxinia bulbs?

For planting gloxinia bulbs, it is advisable to take light, nutritious, sufficiently water and air-permeable peat-based soil. In such a soil, there will be less likelihood of bulbs filling and rotting. Do not plant tubers in “heavy” soils, which, when watering, turn into a long-drying swamp.

How to grow and care for gloxinia?

Place the plant in a well-lit place, but not in direct sunlight. Protect gloxinia from drafts and sudden temperature changes. Water the plant regularly. It is pretty simple to look after the plant. You can also check Anemones and Freesias as they are simple to grow too.

What month do you plant gloxinia bulbs?

Towards the end of February, gloxinia bulbs wake up. This is exactly the time when they need to be transplanted. The bulbs prepared for planting should be as bare as possible (almost like a potato) and strong, not flabby. If you are looking for summer flowering bulbs, check Anemones and Callas.

What would you recommend for planting?

If the bulb is damaged, then it is necessary to cut off the affected areas and dry the bulb within 24 hours. Before planting, soft and shrivelled bulbs can be wrapped in a wet cloth to regain their lost elasticity. Leave them wrapped for two or three days. If the gloxinia bulb is elastic, clean, without visible damage, and has one or more shoots, then it is ready for planting.
