Petrocosmea flaccida and P. nervosa

These small plants have a habit and general appearance reminiscent of small Saintpaulia species. Because of the very tight growth in the centre of the plants, they are sometimes mistakenly assumed to be infested with Cyclamen Mites, with produce a similar appearance in infested Saintpaulia.

Both P. flaccida and P. nervosa can be seen in separate photos;  P. 'Momo', a hybrid of the two, is intermediate in most respects.
