    Would love help in identifying this tropical plant. Got it at a garden center in a 2" pot. Just repotted. Leaves are fuzzy like an African Violet.

    Is it? When I look at the thumbnail, it didn't seem to have the light stripe, but when I clicked on the picture and saw it full-size, it was more ambiguous, especially the leaf that's pointing at the lowest point on the pot's rim, and one of the leaves on the stem in back.
