Family: Gesneriaceae

An unusual gesneriad from southern Brazil. This evergreen shrub to 7 feet is closely related to Sinningia, but does not produce tubers. The large, waxy campanulate clear green flowers are speckled with purple. Pollinated by bats, which are attracted to its abundant nectar and strong odor. Needs bright light to bloom freely. Although drought tolerant, it should be watered frequently while actively growing. By keeping potbound, it can be brought into bloom at a small size. Grow outdoors in mild climates.
