    This is labeled as Aer. ugandensis, but it looks a bit fuller than images I find in books or on line. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? It came out of a collection belonging to a friend who closed his business some years ago. I do not know where he got it. The natural spread is 1/2"/1.26cm.

    It's gorgeous whatever it is. It looks like ugandensis to my untrained and inexperienced eye

    Do you still talk with Jacob Marni? He had a picture of ugandensis in La Croix's book. It doesn't look like mine, but the examples in Stewart's and La Croix's book don't either. Seems like yours is the real deal.

    In my opinion it is A.ugandensis.
    The flower's shape is a bit rounder than mine, and the leaves a bit longer, but I have no doubt, it is A.ugandensis!!

    Looks exactly like mine, which keeps growing keikis like mad but only folwered once for me. How do you care for it? I have mine in the shade, warm and moist, mounted of cork with lots of moss around the roots.
