This species has long been in cultivation, but was only recently transferred out of Streptocarpus and into Damrongia. The former is now limited to African species (including adjacent islands), with all Asiatic species, including this one, transferred to other genera.

Another plant, exhibited at the 2013 convention of the Gesneriad Society, can be seen here, illustrating the Streptocarpus-like twisted seed pods.
