This NOID Callisia thing is blooming

This is the plant from this discussion, trying to ID it. If it is this same plant as Glasshouse Works, the flowers should be blue. But this looks white to me. These blooms are a lot like C. fragrans but MUCH smaller.

Does anyone else have this plant?

There was even a tiny bee (?) on these tiny flowers.

Purple...your Callisia really filled out since you posted on the other thread.

In pic 2 and 3, your plant looks succulent, very similar to a Peperomia I once had.
Pic 3 reminds me of, 'can't recall botanical name,' Cucumber Plant...another succulent.

It's a really unusual plant. I love it!

Don't know if it's the camera or lighting, but the leaves are an unusual green..I adore red/purple stems.

Flowers are so cute, and yes, look white. I'm going to check GHW's...maybe your Callisia is a different species than the plant on GHW? A keeper for sure. Toni

This thing is an invasive house plant like C. fragrans, it wants to get in all of the other pots. The pics are accurate, the leaves really are very light green, almost yellow, waxy. I've been wondering if that's the "right" color for them to be, but when a house plant blooms I assume it's healthy, and it looks just like the GHW plant.

I think it's the same plant as GHW, just some variation in flower color. Wish they had a pic of the "eggshell blue" flowers they saw. Maybe the flowers on mine will change as they age. I noticed some of the stems poking unusually upright the past week or so, and the flowers just the past couple days. We'll watch them together.

If you want some, email me, I have no doubt this stuff can survive a trip through the mail!!

Getting rained on today...

This is really a strange plant. There's got to be more out there...?
