This is a delicate, but beautiful plant which is relatively easy to grow. As with all calceolarias, the main problem is the size of the seedlings, so one must be very careful when transplanting. Compared to other calceolarias, this one needs considerably less watering. Once established, it can withstand snow cover and freezing temperatures.
