"Dutchman's Pipe" Erect stems hold stiff leaves with reddish reverse and odd yellow swollen tubular blossoms fading to parchment white. Brazilian species best grown in lite garden or Wardian case culture--never allow to go totally dormant as with the typical tuberous species, or will enter that dread territory known as terminal dormancy. Best Sinningia choice for hobby growers who are not itrigued with the challenges of dormancy cycles.
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
