Question: 34-5201
I was given a beautiful gloxina three months ago. It is starting to dry out. What should I do? Gabriel, Taftville, CT

Mort's Answer:
Your gloxina is going into dormancy. Do not water or fertilize any more. Allow the root to dry naturally. You can remove the root or store the entire plant without the dry leaves in a cool dry place until March. At that time new leaves should start to appear. Resume watering and fertilizing. Your Sinningia speciosa will be born again.
