This is a very beautiful species, with the large pale to mid yellow flowers contrasting beautifully with the dark and sharply bullate leaves. It is generally grown within a humidity enclosure, if a humid greenhouse is not available. In the photo above, the plant had been removed from its enclosure before it was photographed — and then quickly put back in!

The featured photo above is of a plant exhibited at the 2010 convention of the Gesneriad Society.
