What is this red flowering house plant.

Asked May 30, 2016, 3:11 PM EDT

Gifted this plant. No idea what it is, or how to care for it. Stems of leaves have a red vein on them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I really do not know what plant this is. I looked through my houseplant books and on the internet but did not see anything that resembled this plant. There are lots of new plants entering the market each year and it is difficult to keep up with them. Can you bring it to a local garden center that sells houseplants and ask them? Otherwise, the MA Horticultural Society runs a hotline

They are in Dover at Elm Bank and may have people more familiar with houseplants than I am. They are open M, W & F from 10 am until 2 pm. Sorry I can't be of help.
