    Seems to be Mazzie time in my Greenhouse at the moment.
    M.constricta is named for the squeezed in, narrowed, constricted portion of the flower as seen in side view - the white and yellow flower. A good size this . Even a 3inch pot with 5 or so flowers, is a joy to see.

    Fractiflexa is the big flower, but not so brightly coloured ; still, it takes all sorts !

    Striatella is quite small, perhaps 2 cm across - and I may be magnifying it a bit even at that. But the small pot, maybe 3 inch, cetainly no bigger than 3 1/2 inch had about 12 or so flowers when I put on the display last week. A little charner, well worth a close look I think.
