I visited the Montreal Botanical Garden while I was in that city for business travel. They had an entire room featuring gesneriads and begonias. I was truly in a heavenly Garden of Eden. Here are photos of some of the plants.

These were great, Joseph. It might not be the one I'd choose to try and grow of the group, but that Sinningia bullata is something else.

Thanks, Donald! Sinningia bullata must have been deemed valuable and subject to theft because they had the plant protected inside a locked clear plexiglass box.
