    Does anyone know the identity of this species? I lost the tag some time ago. I apologize for the blurry photos

    Wow, those are some serious roots! I like it but can't help with the I.D.

    I think I've narrowed it down to four species:

    arborescens
    confusa
    comorensis
    rigida

    Any thoughts on those four species would help. Thank you.

    According to measurements of the plant and flowers this is Jumellea confusa.

    But I'm still interested in opinions of others.
