Identifying a Houseplant?

I posted a picture of this plant yesterday, but it turned out very dark so I am posting it again today with a new picture. I am wondering what the name of this plant is. It has fuzzy leaves and stem and has tiny red flowers when it flowers. The 2nd pic shows 2 tiny buds and once it flowers the blooms only last for a day or two.

Thanks for posting better photos!! I was off on the original post. I think this is in the coleus family:

They get spikey flowers that are very pretty.

They are hardy and flexible and can do well in low or bright light.

They like water, but not wet feet.

Thanks for the new photos!! Enjoy your lovely!

I have never seen this. You can ask your local cooperative extension if you want another opinion.

I'm not sure what this plant is. I don't think it's one of the suggested plants.

It could be a type of Gesneriad, some of which have tiny red flowers and very hairy leaves. Do post back with a picture when it blooms.

That's it! I looked it up and it's called an episcia, which is related to the African violet. Thank you for your response! Hopefully it will do better now that I can care for it properly.
