Sinningia leucotricha care guide

Sinningia leucotricha

The new leaf sprouts on a Sinningia leucotricha bulb are always absolutely adorable. They’re so white and fluffy I want to give the plant a hug!
The bulb itself is now just around 10 cm in diameter.

Care guide
If anyone finds one, but haven’t bought it because they’re afraid of killing it, just know that this is the most hardy caudiciform I’ve ever owned. It stays outside (protected from frost) both in winter and in summer and it loves whatever I do to it. Forget to water? Don’t worry, the bulb is made of water and will pull from its reserves whenever it needs to. Afraid you’ll overwater? This thing LOVES water (in summer). I had to repot mine and add more regular potting soil because the soil was drying out too fast.

The only rules are:
Water it regularly in spring and summer, whenever the soil looks dry.
No water in winter. Keep it completely dry and protected from frost.
Give it as much sun as possible.
