From what I understand, this is P. stenopetala x P. pudica, created by Kukiat. Waiting to find out which one is the pod parent.

Here are three pictures showing flower, growth habit and leaf shape.Characteristics from both parents are in evidence. A lovely plant with great potential.

So was that a intentional cross of his? When you find out the pedigree please do tell. Neat flower, do you know if has a scent?

I do believe it was an intentional cross and the scent is very good; not as outstanding as P. stenopetala, but still very very nice.
We hope to have Kukiat join us here too, so maybe he can answer this.

I can't believe how great a cross of the two parents this is:
The coloration of the blooms is like P. pudica (center more greenish than yellow), the pendulous inflo is P. stenopetala; leaf shape is right in between. Stem thickness right in between. No sign of rust!!

We must get Kukiat here to discuss this one.

Luc is in charge of inviting Kukiat. I need to give him a nudge; he still hasn't signed himself up Sad

Here is a picture of Engel flanked by Mom and Dad (and no, I don't know which is which).
