Thanks, all of you, for your kind words! I have seen many of you produce superb specimens of species very difficult to cultivate, so I really appreciate your sentiments and enthusiasm!
You may very well be right. A similar remark was made on another forum, and upon further consideration, I suspect that this is the case! Certainly, we're going to know one way or the other. I'll post further pictures and updates as they become available.I wouldn't be surprised if your plant turned out to be a female.
