    Youre good Ron, look what I noticed this evening
    The ascendens is indeed sending up a scape


    and when you have a graomo and ascendens side by side they definitely have their diffs, one big thing I notice is the underside of the newly forming leaf is much more pubescent on graomo
    D. ascendens leaves seem more linear and have a longer petiole region whereas the graomo seem more eliptical with a very short petiole

    graomo



    compared to ascendens


    Also, notice how red the graomo is compared to the ascendens, even though the graomo is a good 24" from my light while the ascendens is about 12"

    maybe not enough to make a positive ID, but probably good indicators....Im sure there are plenty of variants

    Within a few days after you posted this, a Brazilian supported your observations over on CPUK (seems they found a new location for D. graomo).

Other than that, the leaves seems to be smaller, more fleshy and bear a smaller petiole than D. ascendens. The tip of the leaves seems to be more "pointy" too.

    It's VERY nice that you have finally found a way to tell these guys apart!
    I finally got the guts to take some leaf cuttings since my baby looked pretty good this weekend.
    The leaves on my plant were harrier than I had previously thought- it seems that when I let them go a long time without feeding they get quite red and I think the white hairs show up better that way.

    Here is a full shot of the backside of a leaf:

    Can't wait to spread this species around. I think everyone should have a Grao.
