    Different for a Jumellea - the sepals are wavy near the base. These flowers are crystalline white unlike the arborescens which is a dense, thick, opaque white. Flowers profusely on a plant that's only about 10 inches high. Lots of basal offsets & branches.

    I like it. I have a multi-growth plant that I have never bloomed. What temperatures are you growing this at?

    This is a relatively new plant for me Marni so I won't suggest that its current environment is what produced all these flowers (althought it hasn't seemed to hurt anything). This is in an area that never drops below 55F and never exceeds 88F. I think of that as warm, but not necessarily hot. I give it fairly high light.

    Thanks. That's pretty much the way I am growing mine.
