Sinningia reitzii Awakens

I received this Sinningia reitzii tuber from the raffle at one of the Gesneriad Society chapter meetings over the winter. I don't remember when I picked it up, but I potted it sometime in March. I wasn't sure which way was "up," because I clearly potted it at the wrong time--before growth was showing. The plastic container, however, seemed to be bulging, so I knew something was going on. I ripped out the tuber and found a growing point on one of the sides--so I righted it, and now it has beautiful green fuzzy leaves with red veins! There's another growing point coming out of the tuber, as well, that you can't see in this photo, and more to come, I'd expect. It's quite a large tuber!
