    I bought it as H. subulifolium two years ago. It clearly is the H. amesianum.

    Clark, it is fragrant.

    Marni, the plant came potted and I mounted it up-right. The plant is medium size and its growing habit "could" be semi-pandent like the H. wangii or H. kimbalianum. I grow it under intermediate/warm temperature and bright light, cooler in the winter.

    Are you certain it is amesiana? Amesiana has a very distinctive, upright, rigid growth habit. You can't bend the leaf, it snaps off.

    Yes, it is H. amesiana. My plant is upright for now and the leaves are rigid but I don't know if it may grow semi-pandent later on because it is on stick mount.
