    Default NOID Vandaceous plant...

    The label says Seidenfadenia mitrata - which has flowers an inch across - these are about 1/10th of that ! My memory says Cleisostoma micranthum - and IOSPE has never heard of that, and maybe I even have the genus wrong in my memory.
    The whole plant is about 6 inches high , the spikes 2 or 3 inches long, and the flowers only a few mm across.

    Any ideas ?
