finally. we have been around similar leaves and same family Gesneriaceae recently. this one seems to want to trail or even vine?


but his flowers are scarlet or reddish, which is the most common color though flickr has one yellow flower on a trailing plant.

ok then i agree. color of leaves have varied from totally green to deep coppery brown with blotches…silvery

Episcia cupreata (Hook.) Hanst. ??

we had these from your hongkong trip too. nice


Yes … So many flower and leaf variations.


Does look like Episcia cupreata of Gesneriaceae. But I am thinking, arent those plants labelled at Gardens by the bay?


Thank you … It was not labeled.


but did not you just show several of these same plants in last few days, weeks and months?
