    Despite the fact that most of the D. ultramafica out there are D. spatulata, I really like them! They look like an awesome form of D. spatulata.

    Key them out from the diagnosis in the monograph. Seed is a often a very good identifier of species:

    A have some seedlings via seed from Robert Gibson which probably came from Stewart McPherson. They aren't growing at all. Ivan didn't have any luck with them either. Might be the real deal.

    I suspect that my seedlings may also be the real deal since they are growing so slowly (& the source is extremely reliable). It would be nice if we could get one or two plants growing & then share some leaves. Francois's comments in his blog indicate that the flowers are not self-pollinating - hopefully they are self-fertile.
    All the best,

    If D. ultramafica is related to D. neocaledonica it might like tropical/LL conditions. D. neocaledonica is a notorious slow grower unless given tropical conditions. There was talk on CP UK that D. neocaledonica needs ultramafic/basic substrate for long term growth too. This might be true of D. utramafica also, reports otherwise might be based on D. spatulata (the great impersonator).
