I found it in Tambunan district, I don't exactly know how big is its population, but at least I found it thrives along a small stream. This asian pacific genus 'Cyrtandra' is a big family that comprises many unidentified species and it is the largest genus in the family Gesneriaceae. By the way, Tambunan has idyllic inland countryside scenery, lovely people and it is a famous district for the rice production.
|I met this plant in dry season, it seems ok to pass through the drought by using the little moisture from flowing stream.|
|The leaves are weak and a little dehydrated due to the dry season.|
