* "Obtained at the rare plant auction at the N.Z. conference 2013. It was an import from Brazil by Peter Waters though I am not sure if he collected it or sourced it from a Brazilian collection (like Leme’s). Peter has a terrific collection of Brazilian species and is one of the privileged few to be allowed to take plants out of Brazil in recent years. Thankfully it made it across the Ditch safely with Nigel T, survived AQIS and is doing very well now, though decidedly slow, probably because it originates in high altitude forests. The name is certainly appropriate."
