    Does anyone have pollen for this? I'm finally blooming it. I'd be happy to exchange.

    I have it in bloom as well. Please post a pic of your plant & flowers so I can make sure it's a match. Mine's labeled ibityana and it seems a good fit but I've always wished for a positive ID. I'll try to dredge up a photo of mine.

    I'll photograph it now. Mine is from Malala some years ago, but I haven't keyed it out.

    Sorry Marni, mine doesn't want to bloom....I see somethings which can be spikes, but I am not sure at all....

    There is a mistake in the title, it is "ibityana"!!;)

    A couple of photos of my plant. The first from 2011 and then from 2012. No pics yet this year - just opened. Marni - I think we have the same plant.

    Robin, do you mean you think we have the same species or the same clone? Your plant certainly seems to have larger flowers in proportion to the growths. How large is the pot that yours is in there? Can you take some close ups with a ruler?

    Gilles, have you bloomed yours before? Do you think that these plants are the same species? Thanks for the spelling, too. I think I have them both right now.

    Tomorrow I can get out the books and look closely.

    No, mine never bloomed, it is a little one...
    I thinl that your and Robin's one are the same species, they really look like similar, especialy the lip ad the spur.

    For the name, you can trust me, Ibity is a mountain in Madagascar where this Jumellea has been discovered!!

    Great news! Would you like some for your plant? I have plenty of flowers in good shape.
