    Purchased as H roseum, but probably H. sinicum or flavescens. Does anyone know? I grow it moderately bright with daily water, intermediate temperatures. The branch it is on is about 4" long. There are two separate plants on the mount.

    I like all of the species in this genus. Nice one, Marni.
    I have never seen H. roseum, but I have both. H. sinicum and H. flavescens. H. sinicum has pendent growth and the pine-needle like leaves are much thinner and about 5" long. I think yours is H. flavescens. For comparison, here are a couple of photos of my H. flavescens(Note: photos have been deleted)

    Thank you, all.

    Tom, I wrote a note on the ID, but sometimes I forget to hit the button. I agree that is the same as yours and will note it as H. flavescens

    I just bloomed another clone of this that I got from a different source, so I may try to set seed. Then it takes several years...
