The small brilliant red flowers of this species can light up a room.  Widely distributed as Achimenes 'Tiny Red', this is really just the standard form of A. erecta.  It is one of the earliest gesneriad species to be the subject of botanical illustration, in the early 1800s.  Other photos of the species can be seen here and here
