Episcia ‘Cleopatra’ is a classic cultivar, introduced in 1963 as a sport of E. ‘Frosty’. Its pale pink, green and white leaf colors were a sensation, and it has been widely grown ever since. Flowers, rarely produced, are bright red. Many look-alike cultivars have been produced, with paler or darker foliage colors, or variations on the pattern.

Often grown enclosed in a glass container, the cultivar requires warmth and humidity to do well.
