    Lim,

    where did you get it from? If i had to hazard a guess i would say beteroniana, but the Catopsis genus is very hard to differrentiate (spelling haha?) to an untrained eye such as myself.

    Differentiate.

    I don't think that most Catopsis are easy to find anyways, so I'd say that it's C. beteroniana.

    Nice Catopsis...

    You really ought to try to self-pollinate your flowers. Catopsis seed makes great trading material...

    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    I got this Catopsis from Taiwan nursery as C. beteroniana. I doubt its identity because it is not really powdery. May be because of my growing condition?

    Lim,

    You have a good point there....

    It could quite possibly be Catopsis floribunda instead. Usually, there's at least a little "waxy powder" regardless of growing conditions on C. beteroniana.
