    I would also be inclined to agree with the other opinions. The plants in the first photo are not D. intermedia.

    Regarding the D. intermedia "Cuba", my plants occasionally produce hibernacula. I am suspicious of the supposed origin of this form, since no other tropical D. intermedia has ever gone dormant.

    Yeah the first plant looks like D.capilaris definately not D.intermedia unless they are very young.

    hmmm, it is flowering so it must not be so young, Yay! I have another form!
    are you guys sure it is D capillaris? Jerramiah from the US supposed to send me D intermediate but i think he got mixed up!
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Good thing its not D. capensis (so easy grower in the US, cursed in singapore!) Probably due to singapore's 'hot and tropical' climate.
    Does D. capillaris grow well in singapore? Keep getting those two mixed up...

    That means my tiny 'intermedia' must be capillaris too, as I got it from wezx!
    Woohoo!

    Hmmm... you will be able to tell when they mature a bit more. The D. intermedia 'Cuba' have much more upright growth than the D. capillaris. I will say that they look exactly like my D. intermedia 'Cuba' seedlings.

    Here's my two as a comparison.

    To me at least, the D. intermedia 'Cuba' looks the most likely. You will easily be able to tell when they become more mature though.
