    I got this one from a trade friend as a bonus as Cadetia taylori. It has a different color on the column than the taylori that Jon just posted. I didn't think I could flower it, but it had 3 growths when I got it and all 3 of those flowered and now there are 2 more growths. It's a neat little plant and the flowers last for a while, like around 2-3 months.

    That's hot. Can I get on the list for a division, please? I realize it'll be a few years, but I would love to have a piece of that species. Or... perhaps your friend would be interested in trading something with me... :)

    This is possibly Cadetia maideniana, it appears to have a spiky surface on the ovary on the back of the flower, when pollinated as the ovary grows it ends up looking a bit like a pineapple. I will look a bit further tonight.

    Craig I was thinking maybe Cadetia ceratostyloides, but it might be umbellata also. Candace sent it to me, maybe she wants to chime in

    Looking at Jays site, it does look like umbellata. C ceratostyloides lower petals look a bit to triangular. There is one on the site listed as Cadetia sp (#9 on the list) that looks similar, it's one of Dale's pics he may be able to shed some light.

    Nice one, Josh!

    I have labeled mine as Cadetia umbellata.
