This species was formerly classified as K. bogotensis before botanists came to consider it simply a variety of K. amabilis.

The plant featured above was exhibited at the 2010 convention of the Gesneriad Society. A closeup of the flowers can be seen here.

The variety has been used extensively in hybridizing in order to capitalize on the silvery leaf markings. One example is Kohleria ‘Silver Feather’.
