Bruce Dunstan ... "We saw this plant being cultivated in Zapotoca, Santander, Colombia. Different to other clones I have from other sources."
Bob Hudson ... "I just wonder how many T. funckiana there are as I have psssibly 10 different looking forms. Peter T gave me a few more. The flowers are much the same color exept the one i have labled 'Marron' which is a darker Red."

Peter Tristram, 01/12.
Bruce Dunstan..."I photographed this plant at Rainforest Flora and thought it may be a form of funckiana at the time. It certainly is very attractive in it's growth habit."
Peter Tristram..."Itís funckiana v. recurvifolia. I have a few forms incl. one just like in your pic. Attached is a form Iíve had for many years and it recurves like crazy when mounted."
