This Trochetia is as same as T. boutoniana, the flowers are also bell shaped and red colour. Except that inside the flower has black line ( like black parallel margin inside); the reason of naming it T. blackburniana. Leaves are brown underneath and is a bit molted. Cultivation is in the condition as T. boutoniana.
