I adore its fuzziness. This is a seed grown plant.

Very nice! S. leucotricha is such an interesting looking Sinningia and one I thought about trying my hand at awhile back but life got in the way.

This species is not demanding of the gardener's time. It seems to thrive on neglect.

Plants that thrive on neglect are right up my alley. Smiling When I first got interested in gardening and house plants (back in the late 1960's and early 1970's) I would water things to death ... as I've gotten older and other things have taken precedence, my plants seem to thrive on neglect. I've been saying for years that plants under my care must adjust. But I do have a problem with plants that go dormant ... I usually forget what was growing in the pot and assume whatever it was died so it ends up getting dumped into the compost. Green Grin!
