Zygostates apiculata  syn. Dipteranthus estradae.
I picked up this cute little charmer from Hoosier Orchids a couple of years ago. I was told: "Ursula, you will like it!!"
This February it is flowering the second year in a row without any fuss.
The individual flowers measure about 6-8 mm. I would think the name is "larger" than the flower?

Copious amounts of daily rainwater and good light keep this little plant happy.
