    Cool. That's rather fillaformis-esque, isn't it? Nice pics!

    HI Christian,

    Just out of curiosity, do you know where your D.graminifolia is originally from? It'll probably be Caraša, Diamantina, Grao Mogol, or Itacambira.


    Take Care,

    Hi Christian,

    Serra do Cipo and Diamantina are different places in Minas Gerais state, SE Brazil, a few hundred km apart. While D.graminifolia is very common in the Diamantina area, it is not know from the Serra do Cipo. So I imagine your plants are probably from Diamantina, also known as the "spiralis" form due to the way the leaves uncurl (and because it was actually published by Saint Hilaire as D.spiralis, different from D.graminfolia).

    Take Care,
    Fernando Rivadavia

    Nice looking plant Christian. Looks a lot like mine. The leaves unfurl similar to the fiddleheads of a fern.

    This is exactly the main difference between the type graminifolia (which due to pollution may be extinct in the wild by now, unfortunately...) and the northern forms. In the type plants, the leaves uncurl from a nice rounded bud, like the slice of a rolled up cake. In the northern forms, the whorls of the young leaves are usually not round, but oval and the internal whorls often stick outwards at different angles.
