Class 5 - upright flowering tuberous Sinningia hybrids

SECTION A - New World Gesneriads in Flower - Tuberous
Class 5 Other Sinningia hybrids with upright growth pattern

In this class is one of my personal favorites from the show, Sinningia 'Tomorrow', a Peter Shalit creation.  The upright flowers are very human-pollinator-friendly ;-)  (I don't know if it is fertile...?)
