Pete, Wilbert, Don etc;
In looking over the earlier comments on this species, I have
a few 'experiences' to add.
One leaf is making a small bulbil at the intersection of the
leaf blade and the petiole (ala P cordata etc), but no sign (yet) of
anything at the leaf tip.
The single flower (so far) was given multiple sniff tests at
various times of the day/night and NO scent was ever detected - just
I see another inflorescence just emerging.
Older leaves have risen themselves perhaps an inch above the
soil surface - no longer flat on the ground. We have a lot of very
untypical rain here (but may be more typical for this plant in
habitat) which may be related ???
Remains a most curious little plant. Now up-potted and in half day sun.
Thanks again Wilbert. Jim W.
