    This is a Cadetia species from Papua New Guinea. The flower is about 3/8" (1 cm). The plant is bigger than C. chionantha, but still a mini. I've grown it for many years, but it has bloomed very rarely. The ruler is in feet and inches, sorry I haven't got a metric ruler that will stand up.

    Super cool! I love that.
    The metric system is highly overrated, IMO.

    White? Oh...I hadn't noticed. ;)

    No actually, i like it for that reason but also cuz the plant is nice and small and compact and the flower has a cool shape. Plus my taylori blooms like mad so I halfway think I could bloom one of those, if I had one. :D

    Thank you very much, Piotr, I really appreciate your effort. The same clone, mine is also from Walter Teague. When I bloomed mine recently, I asked Dan if he had this one. He said he didn't so I gave him a piece of mine.
