Sinningia Doll Baby is a delightful miniature Sinningia that will never need anything bigger than a 2.5″ pot to thrive. It produce several rounds of flowers with each blooming cycle, and often has two flowers open at the same time. The flowers are similar in shape and form to a miniature pusilla.

I find that these miniature Sinningias thrive in the warmer humid conditions of summer. They grow easily in a bright window with indirect light or under artifical lights. After flowering, the original growth dies down but newer growths are always developing and blooming as long as growing conditions are ideal. I grow it an an African violet mix, and keep it moist, but not wet, while actively growing.

This plant was planted in a miniature bonsai pot! The bottom two thirds of the pot were filled with perlite to facilitate drainage since these plants do not seem to grow very deep roots. You can see the penny near the base of the plant to give you an idea of the small size of the plant and pot.
