Kohleria bogotensis ID?

haworthia_hoarder(5)February 15, 2013

Hello,
I am pretty new to Kohlerias and someone gave me rhizomes of what they called a K. bogotensis. My plant bloomed today and the flower does not look exactly like the pictures of K. bogtensis flowers that I have found online. My flower is more of a magenta color rather than the red color and the markings seem different as well. Is this a K. bogotensis or something else?
TIA

It can be a primary hybrid of bogotensis, named or not. Leaves look like it, flowers look like it - just the color is a bit different.

Just got a Kohleria expert's reply regarding this plant. This is not K. bogotensis, your suspicions were correct. It is some kind of a hybrid. You need to notify the person who gave it to you as well so mislabeled plant is not distributed further. Nice bloom - you just need to relabel it as K. hybrid.
