Yup Justin, this is the one and the same plant. It seems to be doing great, and there are two other plant already growing off of it! Thanks again for the plants. I am going to probably get some more of these in the near future, in hopes that other varieties will do just as well or better then this one.
Well, mine is about 2 inches off the terrarium floor... so not very tall. Its leaves go out like an african violet, so it is a wide plant. It sends little runners off, and this is where the new plants are growing out of.
The ultimate height of this plant is greatly influenced by the amount of light it receives. In low light this plant will grow straight up, I have some in a 20 high that is pushing the top. In high light this plant grows more compact and lower.
It is a great plant and there are hundreds of varieties all from the same species. It has be hybridized for a 100 years. It's common name is Flame Violet
