This is an interesting hybrid by Dave Zaitlin of a very large growing species and a very small growing species — Sinningia sellovii and S. concinna, respectively. The generally upright (albeit floppy) habit and semi-pendant flowers are a characteristic of the sellovii parent, while concinna has lent its smaller size and spotting in the throat of the flower.

Like S. sellovii, this cultivar can produce a substantial tuber, with the surface of the tuber usually level with the surface of the ground.
