    Hi Owen, the shape of the flower is of P. lusitanica even it seem very small. Maybe the first flower a little anomalous and the next one will be larger.

    For the shape of the leaves, I was more dubious because my plants are more rolled up because grown in full sun like in nature.
    But a friend of mine that grow his plants under artificial lights told me that due to the less intensity of his lights, the plants open completly its leaves to catch all the possible lights.

    So no doubts, you have a true P. lusitanica

    Thanks for the confirmation Eric. The size is definately what threw me off. I was thinking about moving it into a higher light area, but honestly it looks so happy growing where it is.

    I thought at first glance that it was growing in a grass patch, a field of sphagnum that is! Do you grow it outside?
