    That is a pretty Jumellea and nicely photographed, Gilles!

    Gilles, My J. comorensis looks identical to your J. confusa...however, I have only seen pictures of J. confusa(on books) and I would love to know the differences between J. confusa and J. comorensis. TIA.

    I have J.comorensis too, which will bloom soon and when you see the two plants, there is really a difference of shape.
    These two species are really close, I agree with you, but for example J.comorensis's stems becoming elongated and branched with age, slightly flattened, but J.confusa won't.

    What you ca immediatly see when you can compare these two Jumellea, is that the leaves of the J.comorensis are less wide than the confusa's ones...6-12mm wide for comorensis and 10-24mm for J.confusa!!

    Concerning the flower, the spur of the comorensis is a bit longer and the flower a bit wider, than the confusa's one!!
