Re: Piptospatha

Hi Devin,

Your Schismat. Is S. calyptrata sensu lato, which based on the last revision
(Hay & Yuzammi, Telopea 9., 2000) includes S. neoguineensis and a great
number of other names.

Frosty Kiss is Schismatoglottis pusilla Engl., a species restricted the
Philippines. It has been in tc in Thailand for a couple of years and in
various private collections for many years (Josef Bogner has the a similar
or identical clone and has had it since at least since the mid-80s. It is
not a Thai native.

Very best

Peter, and anybody else who might have an opinion.

I have a quick ID question for a Schismatoglottis that I acquired some

Does anyone have any ideas? I don't quite remember how I got to it, but
one possibility that surfaced was S. neoguineensis. I really like these
plants and I hope to find more. I have wondered if the variety being
offered by Asiatica Nursery, 'Frosty Kiss', might be the same thing as my
