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: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned
