A famous Chinese species that is now available thanks to the wonders of modern propagation. My plant grows rather weakly, and I certainly don't have conditions right yet, but it has flowered this year, so I think it is moving forward rather than backward.

I think this is a white form of the species (it was sold to me as yellow). I'm not having much success keeping them past a couple of years so if I try again I will be using a much moister mix in the growing season.
