    It is supposed to be free flowering. It also has put out a lot of leaves too, seems really easy to grow.

    here is a small list of warm growing masdie species:
    • infracta
    • livingstoneana
    • mejiana
    • oscitans
    • pinocchio
    • scabrilinguis
    • floribunda
    • wendlandiana

    i really dig the floribunda, small & blooms year round
    -then there are the hybrids many of which are heat tollerant

    This is not a good picture, but just want to show how many flowers I got from this little guy. Each leave can send out 2 blooms, and they just kept comming out.

    Actually, ThirdDay, I was just reading up on Den. cuthbertsonia and I just bought a Den. limpidum, which is the fat-bulb version of Den. dichaeoides. Neither species wants to dry out. They need good aeration, but must be kept moist with daily watering or even more frequent.
