    I have recollection that when I first showed this I was told it was mislabelled , and clearly I have not changed the label, since the suppliers label is on it. So if anyone thinks I have it wrong, kindly say so, and this time I'll put it right.
    Not as you can see, a giant flower, but with a few more on will be worth showing - I think have increased last year's flower count by x2 or x3. And bigger is not always better.
    Some may agree with me, I think.

    I would say your label is correct, it's nice to see some Ceratostylis out there, good growing Geoff!
