    oh..yours looks like a wild plant.

    ehh...retusa and gigantea have BIG difference..
    gigantea blooms in winter and retusa blooms from late spring to summer.
    and retusa's leaves are very long, longer than gigantea, and gigantea's are thicker.

    so..this must be rhy. retusa =)
    my retusas haven't flower in this year ><"
