Inspired by the Gloxinia - The meaning for Gloxinia is “love at first sight” and when these beauties are in full bloom they are stunning! Growing up, my mom grew African Violets, which are a close relative to the Gloxinia. The trumpet shaped blossoms have soft velvety petals and when it comes to caring for them I remember them as being “high maintenance.” They like lots of indirect sun and are sensitive to overwatering particularly on the leaves. Fiddle-dee-dee indeed.
