Cool! S. muscicola is a great species to grow, blooms profusely, makes plenty of seed, is easy and quickly propagated by seed, cutting or leaf and therefore makes a nearly perfect terrarium plant.

Keep us posted on the progress of this plant, please! I can hardly wait to see how it will turn out because this species is so variable in foliage color/pattern and bloom color...

This is my original plant of S. muscicola in a 1.5" pot. it doesn't exactly stay "micro mini" in my conditions...

Update on my Sinningia and the rest of my little terrarium. I have removed all of the hair moss and replaced it with liverwort and added a P. primuliflora just for kicks. I still have the Sinni in the center with the Anubias off to one side. As you can see in the pic the liverwort is still under construction and I am still up to tricky ideas for the rest of it. Hope everyone enjoys the somewhat neglected tiny half completed terrarium sphere.

Sinningia shot and it as sprawled out a bit but still tiny compared to the Dwarf Anubias.

Long time since my last post here on my little Sinningia. After I lost the tiny terrarium I figured the little guy was gone to and I tossed a mass of sphagnum from the terrarium onto my orchid. I had done this some months back and I only mist my orchid with some RO water each week or so. This is what I noticed a couple days ago...looking better than ever!

Here is the latest shot of my not so little Sinningia. There are 5 seed pods ripening and 2 more that have split open and dropped seeds.
