Chrysothemis pulchella is a beautiful, tuberous gesneriad species with dark, lush foliage and bright yellow flowers on red bracts.  The foliage is of a color that is hard to capture on camera. The best attempt at description I can give is deep purple green with copper tones.  Tubers can get large quickly, but tend to prefer living below the soil surface in contrast to Sinningia relatives. 

I have on offer here young seed grown plants in 2 inch pots already forming small tubers.  Larger flowering plant shown is their mother, and not currently for sale.  But pretty soon, all these little babies will look like that!  She is only a few years old.

These like frequent watering and bright light while in active growth, and they will go leafless dormant in the winter.  I personally don't keep them cool during this time but do reduce watering.
