I've had this for 20 years, but don't have a name. Any ideas?
This is CRAZY -LOOOOOOOOOOVE It!!!
may it be Kefersteinia lindneri?
Could be Kefersteinia lindneri (not the right color) or Kefersteinia taggesellii ( not the right lip) or K.vollesii.
I was looking into Patricia Harding book:Huntleyas....
Why you do not contact her directly ?
On my wishlist! Amazing plant.
Thanks, folks. Andreja, I've done some checking and think it is probably K bertholdii. I have a plant labeled K lindneri which is different, but some references list lindneri as a synonym of K lojae. I have a plant (my first kefersteinia in 1986) labeled lojae which started my passion for this genus. But I have no idea what lojae actually looks like.
I think I have a new love! Now where to find them?
Can you please give us an idea of your general growing conditions, Marni?
Growing conditions: 56F night, moderate light, year round RO water with 1/4 tsp per gallon of MSU at every watering (daily for most of the year), good air movement.
Thank you. It must be nice to get those nighttime temps. This time of year, 80° is sometimes barely achievable around here.
Marni bertoldii - colour wise, was my first guess, but yours has different shape on petals and sepals what was pictured in Patricia book, well she described petals as 1.1-1.3cm x 0.5 x.0.7, sepals 1.1-1.3cm x 0.7 x.0.9, lip 1.2 x 1 cm, coloumn 1.2cm, inflorescence erect - 5cm long, leaves 8-15 x 3-3.5cm, but may it be yours is just better copy of it? ;-P
This in now properly called Kefersteinia pusilla.
