Columnea incarnata

Columnea incarnata is a seldom offered Panamanian species.  It forms stout, upright stems with leathery (almost succulent-like) leaves.  Eventually to 30" tall, but it can easily be kept shorter with pruning. 

In late winter, this species bears stunning large clusters of deep pink-red flowers from the upper leaf axils.

It prefers an intermediate to warm environment and to not be overwatered. Epiphytic, so is tolerant of occasional drying.

Sturdy young well-rooted plants in 2 1/2" pots.
