were given a rooted cutting by a friend a few years ago and it has grown
AND bloomed very well for us despite some challenging conditions weve
provided. We regularly let it get overly dry...and yet it recovers and
blooms for us. As a matter of fact, its hardly ever out of bloom.
Its native to a small area of Tanzania and though Ive read
its from a rainforest area, I suspect there are dry periods; as
it seems perfectly adapted to it; it develops tubors.
for good information about this species. The photos are likely of
our plant's mom!
