Primulina ‘Keiko’ is a hybrid of Primulina subrhomboidea and P. fimbrisepala, made by Toshijiro Okuto of Japan. It is a small-growing Primulina, readily manageable under similar lighting conditions to African Violets, although it prefers cooler temperatures and probably tolerates more light.

When the flowers of C. ‘Keiko’ first open, they point straight down.

After a couple of days, they straighten out to a more conventional horizontal position.
