    Default Trichotosia velutina

    This is brand new for me, got it last Thursday. I saw this in a friends new Greenhouse that he had posted, in another forum, showing his newly finished building. I had never seen or even heard of this species until seeing his video. When I saw it I knew I wanted a division, he was kind enough to send me this, in bloom. The blooms did not do well with the shipment but I still wanted some photos, there are more buds that have not opened so more photos to come, including the entire plant. The blooms come out under the leaf.

    A hairy species that I have never heard of. For a second I thought it was Vandeae but it's not.
