    Beautiful flowers.
    The shape of the flower (isosceles triangle with sepals tips) and of the lower sepals remind me of Phal. bellina ("wild" type not the selected round type).
    Don't you think that it could be a Samera ? Violacea flowers often have a shape included in a equilateral triangle (in my opinion and my experience).

    Hi Eric thanks for your quick response, I can imagine what are you trying to describe, here I attached a photo of jungle bellina. The second photo is Malaysia violacea and the last 2 photos is jungle violacea from Mentawai. The plant that I got it is seed raising wild violacea according to the seller, unless he lie me. The seller also told me Malaysia violacea relatively has small flower.Thanks again.

    Thank you Zainal.
    Your "jungle" bellina is wonderful, I love this type. Its shape is for me very similar to the shape of the violacea Sumatra of this thread.
    What about the fragrance ? Floral fragrance (lily of the valley, rose) as for violacea or citrus scent (lemon, tangerine) as for bellina ?

    You are welcome.The scent is typical for all violacea very strong (lily of the valley) no bellina smell at all.
