    Nice shot Vincent! Years ago, back when it was named Diacrium, I had it crossed with Schomburgkia thompsoniana which has also suffered a name change. It has a pretty pink flower with a most delightful perfume. Wish I still had the plant.

    You really got me going here Vincent ; I know this plant as a Diacrium - the name change passed me by ,I wonder how long ago ? Not that I have it in my collection at present - I don't find Diacriums or their intergeneric hybrids very easy, and they are not often available either, but anything labelled Diacrium has been on my wish list for ever...nowI suppose I have to remember Caularrthron ( sounds like some kind of wart - not an attractive name ! )

    If only... Importing one plant legally ( CITES + Phyto) might cost me 100 SS$ at your end in paperwork + the plant + air-mail postage ( SS$50 (?) and at this end about SS$140 in paperwork,,,= US$200... an expensive plant - and then about 1 in 5 plants sent airmail get left by the open window ( joke) on the airplane and arrive dead...
    I'll pass on this one.
