Re: SPEC: What is this?

it is fine that the donor of your plant is known, but sorry exact
identification not. when studying your photo I remain to the same my meaning
it is I.japonica not I.confusa, though John have some reasons to believe so,
because flowers in apperance and diameter are very similar . Identifying
from comparison with other photo can not give true results. It is better
identify from other signs. Listen, please. I .japonica with flower stem in
appearance is some similar to those TB. It have basal dark green glossy
leaves  redish purple near the ground. Flower stem grow from middle of
leave fan and is about 45-80cm, but in the container I think it reach
minimum. size. The apperance of I.confusa is quite another. From the rhizome
grow erect bamboo like stem about  80-120cm high, than on the top of this
stem grow leave fan with flower stem 20-30cm long. So it looks like
I.japonica growing not on ground level, but on the bamboo like stem. Such an
apperance have I.wattii only flowers are some larger. So you can exactly
study have your plant bamboo like stem or not. Let me know about your
observations Mark. It is interesting for me too.
