    Cute little pleuro species. The flowers are long-lasting and generally come in pairs that usually face each other. I've heard them described as "kissing slugs." The flowers are about ½" tall. The leaves are rather succulent.

    Bright shade, intermediate with cool winter nights, dries out between waterings.

    Very nice. Evidently native to Brazil.

    Nice one! :) In the first photo, it looks like the flowers marked a kind of "path"
