This rather small plant had remarkable green flowers. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of the leaves. They were in a greenhouse in a botanical garden, so they can out any part of the world. Probably tropical.

It looks like Sinningia brasiliensis.

Yes it does, here is another picture of the green form:


We don't have any pictures of this in the NGA database. Maybe Ruud would like to add them if there is general agreement on the ID.

Good eye Danita! Thumbs up My first thought was the bloom looked like Sinningia too and that pretty bloom sure does look like S. brasiliensis!
