Unit Pack Size: 5" Pot
Light:Gloxinia does best in half shade; strong sunlight burns its leaves.

Water:High humidity is essential. Use a humidifier or put the plant on a wide saucer of
damp pebbles. You can mist around the plant but never on the leaves. In the springand summer it needs a lot of water. Less from September on.

Temp:Choose a warm spot in summer, 68-72 degrees is just fine. In winter, the tuber restsat 59 degrees. Avoid cool nights or drafts.

Soil:Plant your dormant tubers in fresh soil (a slightly acidic standard potting soil) inFebruary.

Fertilizer:Feed 1/2 strength liquid fertilizer, high in potash, during active growth.

Pests:Aphids and spider mites.

Special Care:The Gloxinia blooms from April to October, then its natural resting period begins.
First it ceases to bloom and then the leaves yellow and wither. Keep it in its pot
at around 59 degrees; don't water or feed it. In February take it out of its pot, rinse
it, and replant in fresh soil.

Flower Color:They are available in white, red, violet, spotted in two colors or veined.

Growth Habit:Gloxinia is a tuberous plant. Its leaves are about 6 inches long with short stems, and
are so dense that they almost look like a rosette. Flowers bloom from the center of
the rosette.

Fun Fact:It owes its Latin name to William Sinning, the gardener of Bonn University. The name
we know it by, Gloxinia, comes from Peter Gloxin, who was a doctor in the German
town of Kolmar.

The key to a happy plant is proper care!
