    Ron,

    It's some type of Gloxinia. To me it looks like an alien singing in the choir!!

    hi,
    yes, they look like they are singing.

    here is another plant with similar flower, the bright yellow didnt come out well on this shot, but it certainly fits into the choir, lol.
    i have NOID on this one.

    That one looks like some kind of Streptocarpus, but I can't be sure!

    hi,
    yes it does, but the leaves are colorful on mine and the lip? is more hairy, i guess its somewhere in this family.

    Very cool! Is, the Bolivian Sunset, a bulbous plant? Grows from bulbs?

    Edit never mind...I googled, it is Gloxinia sylvatica

    Ron (walingwaling), The plant in your photo is an Episcia, probably Episcia cupreata or a hybrid. They are related to Streptocarpus, Gloxinia (Synningia) & St. Paulia (African Violet). I believe the common name for Episcias like this is Flame Violet.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    cheers,
    Ron I think flame is for the red color and violet is referring to the genus Viola, commonly known as violets
