Cyrtandra is the largest and most widely distributed genus in the Gesneriaceae, and ranges from Hawaii through virtually all of southern Asia. Species are generally shrubby and even treelike, and frequently have drab white flowers. C. serratifolia is one of the attractive exceptions, and was photographed in Sulawesi, Indonesia, during a research expedition conducted by the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh (RBGE).
