For me, I only wanted the species.  I found a mail-order nursery selling
them.  But when I sent my order, I received substitutes instead.  So to
avoid that frustration again I joined the Gesneriad Society to order
directly from their seed bank (I got everything I requested... no
substitutes!).  I also acquired 1 rhizome of Smithiantha cinnabarina through
eBay and it has grown into a very nice young plant.  The leaves are soooo
beautiful... I can't wait till it flowers!
