Available for years in the trade as streptocarpa mini, it is actually believed this plant is a subspecies of paleacea from the apurimac region of Peru. Small, compact, silvery plant with wider, less scurfy leaves than paleacea. Forms tight clumps and looks really attractive with multiple blooms on it so resist the urge to separate them if you can!
