This was a spectacular plant, shown at the Gesneriad Society convention flower show in 2007. Note the stakes holding up the long stalks; in nature, the stalks might bend and then turn towards the light, or be held up within a clump.

The species was featured at The Amazon Spheres in 2022, when many GS convention attendees were able to see it during a convention tour of the Spheres. It was growing robustly on the multi-story living wall within the Spheres.
