Str. goetzeanus is seldom seen and seldom flowered. It requires cool temperatures to thrive. Its unusual and beautiful two-toned flowers are carried on a plant that, in nature, is a “creeping herb on mossy rock surfaces in deep shade in upland rainforests” (see Jeff Smith’s article on Saintpaulia, on this site). These are not conditions easily reproduced in cultivation. Note that in the photo above the blackish portions of leaves are a function of photo processing.
