    Very nice, but D. pygmaea should not have short red styles - there seems to be a lot of this going around as D. pygmaea:

    Thanks,

    Any ideas on what they are so that I can adjust accordingly? Apparently I should begin questioning sellers to make sure there labels are correct. Watch out fellow ebayers.

    do you have any flower pics of your nitidula x pulchella?...the general aspect of the plant makes me think of an other hybrid

    Yes,

    I've had some confusion with this one too. I got these from a well respected vendor and did not trust the label either. I thought D. nitidula x pulchella had white flowers. I got some info from others saying that it could also have pinkish purple flowers so I left it with this label. Geez I'm glad someone is a pygmy specialist. Let me know if these are something else too. Thanks.
