Plant care

The Sinningia leucotricha likes a light spot and because of its reflective grey leaves, it can even tolerate some direct, bright sunlight. The potting soil of this species should be kept moist during growth and can be left to dry out when the tuber is at rest. This is possible because the Sinningia leucotricha stores water in its tuber. However, stagnant water near its roots is bad for the plant. Therefore let superfluous water drain from the bottom of the container. The Sinningia leucotricha prefers an ambient temperature of between 5° Celsius [41 F] and 35° Celsius [95° F]. The soil should be a light, permeable substrate, for example an Araflora mix of sand, peat and potting soil.
