    Dilatato-pet and paradoxa are pretty different by eye. Ron's post was probably about petiolaris vs. dilatato-pet... A distinction even I have not fully groked...

But IMO that is just a plain old paradoxa.
    Agree w/ Pyro. Especially at this age, there does not appear to be anything suggesting something other than the paradox of the petios.

    On the dil-petiolaris vs petiolaris discussion, I'll probably go to my grave not fully grasping Sean Spence's taxonomic interpretation of the differences. IIRC, however, I had similar confusion w/ Andreas F. explanation of another petio (possibly the narrow leaf D. ordensis?). While I can handle ID'ing many/most plants, taxonomy is not one of my strong points.

    I would definitely default to Travis & the others before quoting me .... (although I do think the post in quoted thread is accurate)
    All the best,

    Here's my Petiolaris 'hybrids' from the same lot of seed as Jim.



    They were simply labeled as Petiolaris Group Hybrids from the ICPS.

    EDIT: Yours are looking nice Jim!

    Crystal,

    Yours look to be paradoxa as well to my eye.

    Thanks Pyro. I think for the time being I'm going to leave them labeled as hybrids. Flowers probably wouldn't be much of a help with confirming an ID would it? They all look similar to me.

    The actual flower in and of itself may not be super indicative unless you know all the details of taxonomy for the group (which I do not) but the scape itself may be a good indicator. D. paradoxa is notorious for having huge numbers of blooms (I have had more than 100 on a single scape before) while most of the others have significantly fewer. If the plant is a hybrid then it may show differences in flower "capacity" on the scape. But then it may not...
