Will there ever be a micro Sinningia better than 'Li'l Georgie'?

Sinningia 'Li'l Georgie' with 20 buds grown by Gary's Specialty Plants
Story # 89,

Will there ever be a better micro mini Sinningia better than ‘Li’l Georgie’?

      The trial is over.  Sinningia ‘Li’l Georgie’ is exceptional in every way.  It is a cute miniature flowering houseplant.  Once established it flowers continuously in medium to high light.  It has been shown to be capable of many flowers and buds.

      The story about Nematanthus ‘Cheerio’ showed that it has survived 35 years in production because it could be propagated by vegetative cuttings, by any grower that was interested.

      The limiting factor with ‘Li’l Georgie’ will be continued propagation by tissue culture.

      The current successful tissue culture propagation and tricky rooting has involved a lot of trial and error.  ‘Li’l Georgie’ will require a dedicated grower committed to its widespread distribution.

      Without that supply line, it will disappear, with no other practical method of propagation.

      Is there any other micro mini Sinningia out there to challenge it   

               I don’t think so!
