    Another Mystacidium capense. I prefer the flower form on this plant over some of my others - longer, more narrow petals & sepals gives it a bit of a spidery look. It's not as floriferous though. Maybe I'll cross it with plant 002, which blooms its guts out.

    M. capense will bloom as a relatively small plant but, in any event, is well worth the wait. Every time it blooms it throws more spikes.
