This is an easy-to-grow plant with leathery, succulent leaves and many small pinkish flowers on long stems. It is attractive both in flower and out of flower, and is often exhibited as a foliage plant, as here. The sculptural quality of the stems and leaves make it very attractive even when out of flower. The plant featured above was exhibited at the 2010 convention of the Gesneriad Society.
