The plant was obtained in the recent 'Job Lot' and planted up into 6 x 5.5cm pots (2"). It's a true miniature so this size pot is perfectly adequate for it's full life cycle.
Three of the six pots of Neohenricia sibbetii
It is often described as a monospecific genera in the books but that is because of the age of those books. There is a second, relatively recently described, species Neohenricia spicata which has larger leaves and the flowers scented of liquorice. There was one offered for sale this week but it was located in Ukraine and no phyto available so I gave that a miss.
Back to N. sibbbetti. The pot on the left (above) has old flowers evident (seed?) so that was encouraging. Then this morning I find this little chappie poking up proudly.(Top left)
I'll have to keep an eye (and nose) on this one this evening. The evening/night blooming flowers have a reputation for being highly scented of pineapple.

dvg: It wasn't too bad Steve, more snow is still expected in our forecast, but nothing too out of the ordinary for here

dvg: Did manage to pack down seven pails full of fluffy fresh snow, but despite trying to compact the snow as much as possible and even doming each pail's surface with an extra scoop on top, once melted, the pails were far from being full

dvg: When one collects a bucket of water, he has himself a bucket of water, while a bucket of melted snow only yeilds a third of a bucket of water, at best
Jan 9, 2020 16:42:01 GMT
dvg: But that said, there is still no shortage of snow drifts here now in which to harvest fresh snow from

dvg: According to your forecast, it looks like after a sunny weekend, you'll all be seeing some good rain
Jan 9, 2020 17:05:27 GMT
dvg: But at least you'll be collecting full buckets of aqua, unlike my mere pennies on the pound

dvg: Supposed to warm up to a high of -32°c later this afternoon...that should take the edge off

corky: Don't know how you cope with those temperatures, far too cold pour moi
Jan 14, 2020 22:04:17 GMT
