A large gesneriad from Taiwan and China. I have wanted it for a couple of years and was finally able to get one from Edrom Nursery. I started it off in the Agave house but as soon as it developed full sized leaves it dried out too rapidly and I had to move it back to the greenhouse where it is growing in light shade with the Aspidistra.
Much easier to keep moist, which is said to be the secret in getting it to flower.
