    I'd never seen one before either. I bought it at the WOC and I read the tag as C. radiosa. I was looking it up today and found C radicosa. It has wonderful orange tips on the roots and a zig-zag inflorescence (which I just couldn't get in the shot).

    the zig-zag ...might be related to xyrekes. How big is the plant Marni? Can I cue up for a future division?

    Ron, the plant is about 6" tall. A very nice looking plant. I looked it up and it is in a different section than xyrekes. If you want, I can tag the plant for you so I let you know when I have a division.
