    I got this aeranthes as Aeranthes caudata from Jason Fisher. The label has a clonal name 'Green Dragon' although I doubt they meristemmed this so it's probably a mis-labeled seedling. Gilles doesn't believe this is caudata due to the lip and length of petals so I'm just curious what people think it might be, given that there is limited hybridization in the genus. Or maybe it's just a first bloom seedling and therefore shaped weird?!

    You could be right. It doesn't look like my aeranthes grandiflora, but I'm having trouble finding a key Screen Shot 2022-09-09 at 12.57.09 PM.png
