This plant was exhibited as part of the Best-In-Show winning entry of a Sinningia collection at the 2023 Gesneriad Society convention show.

This is an unusual plant, in that it has the look of a convention S. speciosa hybrid from the group often referred to as “Gloxinias”, which have their origin in the 19th Century. However, it is a modern hybrid that has in its background Sinningia guttata, which contributed the peloric flowers, along with wild collections of S. speciosa with typical nodding flowers.
