Sorry doesn't look like either of those mentioned to me, tho' I have no alternate suggested IDs.

That mix looks like mud, I'd suggest a faster draining mix w/ 1/3 perlite or pumice.

I have impatients that looks bit similar - photo attached;
it is impatiens niamniamensis (common name is the parrot beak plant).
It does not have veining that I think your plant has, but since Marguerite mentioned impatient, maybe this helps...Rina

Looking at the photos, the leaves are more pointy & have wavy is a close-up; but there is many impatients, try to google them. Rina

Hmmmmmmm..... I'm thinking Sanchezia nobilis. Looks like mine. If this is what it is, keep it moist at ALL times. This is one that does not like drying out. It will drop leaves-- fortunately they seem to grow back. It's potentially a large shrub so keep it pruned. Sometimes flowers will appear that are yellow. It does benefit from descent humidity. Keep it in bright light so it doesnt grow spindly. Kind of a challenge for me to keep happy. Good luck with yours. Kyle

Plants, coloring resembles Sanchezia, but leaves are too small. What do you think? Toni

Toni- Thats exactly what mine looks like after I lost all it's leaves. The leaves came in small and not well defined. Unfortunately I threw mine out last week. It was ruff all winter after it dried out. Im hoping to find another tho; definately water it better this time round. I think the better the light, the bigger the leaves... and also better defined color. Just my thoughts tho;). Now I guess I better go find another and compare. you happen to know if there is a difference between Sanchezia nobilis and S. speciosa? Are they synonymous? Kyle

Plants...I think small leaves, 'depending, how small,' is from lack of humidity and hot temps.

At the conservatory, Sanchezias are grown under Palm Trees...more shade than light..The room is pretty humid and temps are cool.
Their Sanchezias grow tall, huge leaves, and large yellow flowers.

I believe nobilis has larger leaves and flowers than speciosa.
There's also a variegated type, but I've never seen one for sale..So pretty.

Accents had Sancheias..Toni
