La Escondida is very close to Aramberri, and the plants show the same variation in flower color and body morphology. As at other locations around this area flower colour is variable with 60% of the plants displaying deep pink flowers, the rest being white or nearly white, tubercle variation was possibly even wider than that observed nearer to Aramberri.
