How about an african violet? variety of Saintpaulia spp.....
leaves: features of this plant remind me of all the african violets
I have grown from leaf cuttings....
and the flower branching pattern... too... and the fine hair and
succulent stems of flowers and leaves....
not to mention the flowers themselves ...(of course some begonias may
look like this)
but my vote so far is for African violet....

popular houseplant in the north american homes, and in england...
wish we would get them here now that many things are being
imported... this is a delightful plant to have under a table lamp or
the north windowsill.

To me it looks similar to Usambaraveilchen (Germanname)/ Saintpaulia, commonly known as African violet.
