Sinningia 'Towering Inferno' sold by Plant Delights Nursery
Story # 14, Part II

            The subject of evaluation of new plants is always an issue.  Just because you have a new Sinningia doesn’t mean that it’s any good.

            Testing of a product depends on at what scale it will be sold and what is the necessity of it being without fault.  Plants come and go.  The good ones survive.

            So how do we know which are the good ones?  The market place is brutal.   People talk.

            Sinningia is such a minor crop that word-of-mouth whether it is good or bad doesn’t get much press.  But through hobby flower shows and of course, the internet, the bad plants or the good plants including Sinningias get sorted out.

            Sometimes ‘Just put it out there for the people to see’ is not a bad strategy.
