    I've posted one or two clones before, but this is the first time I've photographed this one.

    Really beautiful!!

    Is it one from Malala?? I've sowed a green pod coming from her, with success, but I didn't see the parents blooming....

    Gilles, none of my plants came from Malala. I have 2 from a rescued collection and one from Ching Hua. I sowed a pod in mid April that was an outcross. It wasn't the most robust pod and I may have cut it too early. I don't have germination yet, but I'm still hoping.

    Fantastic, Marni! Crossed fingers for your success with the seed sowing.

    Gilles, you may be interested to know that a few of the plants coming from Malala as Neobathiea grandidierana (filicornu) have turned out to be the closely-related yet distinct Neobathiea keraudrenae.
