One third more...

Three leaf Sinningia 'Prudence Risley'
Story # 67,

      Most Sinningias have one pair of leaves per whorl.

      Sometimes something happens and you get 3 leaves per whorl which repeat up the shoot.

      Many Gesneriad followers have noticed this before and get excited that a super-clone has been discovered.

      Why does it matter?

      Well with this shoot of Sinningia ‘Prudence Risley’ we could get one third more flowers ----- 3 instead 2.

      In all the times that I have followed a 3-leaf shoot, it always fails me when the branches revert back to 2-leaves.

      Maybe this time will be different?
