    Hey Drew, thanks for the i.d. Looks like I posted the wrong pic though. Guess that's what preview is for. This is the one:http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/k...s/100_2744.jpg

    Jimscott,

    Thank you. I believe I was right in identifying the plant labeled as gypsicola x moctezumae to be gracilis x moctezumae instead. Although the plant that I have seems to be a bit darker than yours but the shape of leaves seems to be similar.

    Same goes for P. 'Aphrodite'.

    In addition comparing the pictures of the plant that was labeled as P. moranensis with the ones available online I am certain that it is actually P. 'Titan'.

    Thank you!

    BTW, I have pics of some of the other plants that you have sent me last year. If you are interested

    I believe you are right Gill, the P. gypsicola x moctezumae is actually P. gracilis x moctezume. I apologize to anyone that has gotten one from me in trades or other transactions. I've had the plant for years and never questioned the ID. I'd be interested to know if anyone has the true P. gypsicola x moctezume. I don't think I've ever seen anyone with it on this forum. It seems the true P. gypsicola x moctezume takes after the P. gypsicola parent. Leaves are erect and slender; has little to no color.

    The P. moranensis/Titan I'm still waiting on. Mine are still dormant. It's very possible it is P. Titan. I apologize for this one as well for anyone that has gotten plants from me . I remember it appearing different from my P. Titan (the one that came labeled as Titan). Only time will tell.

    EDIT

    I did some digging and found some old pictures of my so called "P. moranensis". One is a flower picture, and certainly isn't the best. Probably not much good for an ID. I also found a picture back when the plants were young. You can see it is developing slight points at the end of each leaf much like P. "Titan".





    I'll take some new photos when mine finally decide to wake up for the year.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
