    This is a clone (‘New Zealand’ AM/AOS) that I got from an Dracula friend near San Francisco. This one was difficult to hold still and photograph...so these were my 2 best photos.

    Such a stunner! Is begging allowed :rolleyes:
    If only we could find a cuthbertsonii in that color.

    By the way, how is your D. gorgona 'colombo' doing? I hear that the xanthic plants are slow growing.

    Thanks all! Ryan, this hirtzii seems to be a fast grower...anticipate divisions in a year or two . The gorgona clone is a bit slow, but does bloom regularly.
