Sinningia lineata is an attractive plant, with an interesting bright salmony color and clear spotting on the face. The plant above exhibited at the 2015 convention of the Gesneriad Society, is just coming into bloom — note the many buds, which will turn into a huge number of flowers. The species is characterized by a caudiciform tuber (above ground at the base of the plant), which can become very large as above. There is some variation in the flower color and spotting pattern on the flowers.
