    Very nice. I had a segawai of this genus but wasn't able to keep it watered enough, but one of these days I get another one to try my hand at.

    Almost picked one up at a recent show but the vendor wanted more than I was willing to part with.

    I will end up with a couple when I find some of reasonable size and price myself. I think they are too cool....and your flowers are just to cute!

    Hi, a very nice plant with a very nice bloom.

    However, I have doubt that its a Chiloschista lunifera. It looks more like Chiloschista ramifera to me.

    Cheers

    I will have to look. It came to me as a Chiloschista species. Thanks!

    Ron, check Chiloschista yunnanensis as well. Do you know the country of origin?
