    It`s flowering! The flower stalk is glandular as are the sepals. The petals are hot pink and the flower is about 1\4 in. in diameter the plant is just over 2 in. The flowers if poilinated with a small paintbrush close within 2 minutes.

    Heres a pic of the flower[img]http://home.**********.com/users/pondboy/D.spat1flower.JPG[/img]

    Believe it or not, I can actually tell that this is D. spatulata by the flower shape. Even with a clear picture there would not be much I could add to that, other than to say it is likely not from NZ, or Queensland.

    Noah, are using my complimentary Earthlink camera, again?
    Tamlin: I have a spat that also is showing hot pink (fuschia) buds. Could you narrow it down to the possibilities?

    Spec,

    Pond Boy is Noah.

    Jim,

    Sorry, but the floral color is only good for eliminating possibilities. I mentioned some of the more unique members of the species in the earlier D. spatulata thread, and so won't repeat that here.

    With a species of such wide distribution and variability, I regret that there is little hope of assigning population specifics to orphans lacking collection data, unless some detailed variation presents itself (hairy sepals, white flowers, diminuative stature, atypical styles). Most D. spatulata flower pink.

    BTW Pond Boy I have found that D. spatulata are invariably self fertile, so hand pollination isn't really needed, unless you are honing your skills.

    Yeah, there are at least 2 Noahs, bazillions of Steves, at least 4 Travises, a few Johns, one Tiah, 1 Theresa, 1 Tanya, 1 Suzanne, a couple Michelles, and just one Tamlin [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Reminds me of an old Harry Mudd episode of Star Trek - 500 Mayzies, 500 Alices, 500 Stellas, and 1 Norman. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
