    That is a tough one Jan! Do you know genus? The flower is Dend tetragonum-like but the vegetative growth is nothing like tetragonum.

    Ron i have no clue actually I know quit a lot of species but there are so many and with this one i really do not know
    In summer i had it outside, one day we had a cold rainy day. after that i had more than 10 flowers just days after that
    in the greenhouse it flowers one or two flowers at the time but very regular. T?he flowers last only for a day but are in comparison to the plant large

    hope someone can id

    Jan, if you don't mind, I will post these on another forum I participate on as well as send this info and pics to my friend. Hopefully, can get an ID for you.

    Jan, I have the genus for you. The flower pictures are not good enough for me to obtain a better ID.
    The genus is Diplocaulobium

    Thought I recognized it. I had a couple of species from this genus but a friend helped me with ID'ing genus.
