    Hi Branka, look at the measuring rod next to the plant. It's really an half pint.

    Love it! Really does look like it is made of snow. What are the growing requirements? A big temptation for the wish list.

    Bill, this species is growing on the trees in West Java at from 900-1000 m. Also you can imagine, humid, fresh air and not to much sun. I saw pictures with two or three flowers. My plant has, for second time, just one.

    just few days. The reason, that the flower look like crystal is the high resolution of my camera. 21MP. So the subtile structure of the flower, became visible.
