    Intermediate grower. This is a FBS from a flask of Amesiella monticola purchased by another hobbyist and sent here. As I understand it, A. monticola is just an alba A. philippinensis.

    I'm not an expert but it sorta looks like a primary hybrid between monticola X philippinensis! My understanding is that they are come from quite different elevation ranges.

    Nice clone, Dale.
    I still think they are different species. The flower is very similar but different...My A. monticola is a much bigger plant. The leaf of A. monticola is nearly the same size as of a multi-growth A. philippinensis.
