    Default Cleisocentron abasii or Cleisocentron merryllianum

    I've got this plant as Cleisocentron abasii, but I'm not sure if it's one or even Cl. merryllianum. In contrast to my another Cl merryllianum, the grow of this plant is upright. My merrillianum actually arching. The flowers are quite similar. Maybe somebody can help me to identify this species.

    One of my favorites! My merrillianum has upright growth and looks like yours.

    Incredibly beautiful! Do you have to grow this on the cool side some, or would you say much of the year to bring out this fantastic color? AL

    For sure it is not Cleisocentron abasii. Cleisocentron abasii has 10-30cm long inflorescence, carrying 10-30 well spaced flowers. The flower has very distnctive swollen nectary tip.

    I would still like to call this one Cleosocentron merrillianum but some may like to call it Cleisocentron gokusingii because of its up-right growing habit.
