This beautifully variegated cultivar appears to be a mutation of an unknown species, presumably from Thailand. It is very slow-growing and difficult to propagate, and flowers rarely – but when they occur the bright red flowers are a dramatic contrast to the leaves. This plant was exhibited at the Gesneriad Society’s 2019 convention.
