    News to me ! But you are right, of course.
    Oddly enough, IOSPE says that Cleisocentron are pendulous, whereas Cleisostoma are upright. And the flowers of both genera are very similar, unless one starts dssecting them. My plant,btw is upright, and shows no signs of wanting to be pendulous.

    Not really. I have two plants, one makes, hanging down, a long arrow. The second one is upright. Also all another Cleisocentron are growing also upright.

    Though it's from Borneo but I had very bad experience difficult to maintain this plant as the time goes the plant stunted and vanished so sad, this one is a real beauty Geoff.

    I made a new label, and when I went to put it in with the plant,. found that the original label is correct - or very nearly ; I guess I had a senior moment when I typed it here.
