Sinningia ‘Dollbaby’ is the tetraploid form of the hybrid S. ‘Diploid Dollbaby’, from the cross S. eumorpha x S. pusilla. It was the first truly successful example of what have become known as the “miniature Sinningias”. It is quite comfortable in a 2 1/2 or 3 inch pot, and will grow to a maximum size of about five inches in diameter, often smaller. Many lavender flowers will be produced on a well-grown plant.

Like many of the miniature Sinningias, ‘Dollbaby’ does well under flourescent lights in moderately warm and moderately humid environs. It should be potted in a fairly open but moisture retentive medium, and kept evenly moist but not wet. Regular fertilizing with a dilute solution will produce the best results.
