    Default Staurochilus ionosoma

    last year I've bought this plant as Staurochilus ionosoma, but when I look at the Jim book, I doubt if it's a correct name. Jim, what do you think?

    Derek, you are right. I'm wondering why I didn't take notice of the fragrance.
    Zainal, Tomorrow I'll take picture of the whole plant.

    Zain, her the pics of the whole plant. On the first picture you can see on the left, stem with out leaves. It's around 50 cm long and on the end, picture 2, is the inflorescens. I think it isn't a typical shape. Staurochilus looks like the small plant on the picture 1.

    Hi Mietek,

    Your plant certainly is Staurochilus ionosma.
