    Spectacular, Gilles! Is this from Malala?

    Someone from France named Ezekiel just posted a picture of a blooming one on Orchidboard, perhaps he'd help you with an outcross?

    I feel like this has an equal reputation as henrici. I need one though. I love the looks of your plant.

    Yes it is.
    I know Ezekiel and its teretifolia comes from Malala too, I've imported these two Jumellea somes years ago and sold him one.
    We have already decided to share pollen!!!;)

    I've had one of these from Malala for probably 10 years and never bloomed it. Are you growing it bright? I wonder if I got a division of the non-blooming clone. Have you tried different temperatures? I've been growing it intermediate and afraid to try something different. Silly, what have I got to loose?

    I don't have it in shade, but it receives a lot of light.
    No direct sun, but I give it the same conditions that I give to Angraeum dollii for example.
    As all my orchids, it is cultivated as a temperate-cold during winter, and temperate-warm during summer...because of the size of my greenhouse....:D
