    Very interesting flower, but does not last to long in the heat. If only in bloom for several days, it still is an enjoyable plant.

    Hi John, what conditions do you grow this under? I have bloomed a similar species (microrhombos) for the first time this week. Also only lasted a few days in the heat. I grow it in a warmer microclimate in a cool greenhouse (at least in the winter).

    Conditions for my plant are rather basic. In a clay pot with moss. Grows in the south side of the green house, plenty of light, humidity and misted daily. Temps range from 55* in the winter and tops out at 90, seems to like that

    Thanks John...that would be the same conditions that mine is in. I also have a small division of nitidus, but have not bloomed it yet.
