    I always think this one looks like horns of a Water Buffalo
    Must be fairly variable species in color. Mine looks similar but colored differently

    I've always loved this genera. Had a swerti years back that bloomed quite easily for me. Lost it during a move and a couple years ago got a new one. Unfortunately, have been unable to bloom it and really can't figure out why.........

    Hi pavel ,
    itīs a pity thatīs not bloom for you now.

    I have much more Scaphos and all blooms now .
    But not all needs the same cultivation .They have several places .
    Maybe you must experience
