Well, good news and bad. Since the 2 flowers looked so different I did a web search. The bad news is that I don't have Papilionanthe vandarum and Uri does. The good ? news is that according the species sites etc, mine and about 20 others that I know of have Papilionanthe subulata. No wonder the flowers looked so different. My plant, the person I got it from and all the others have been growing this plant under the wrong name for decades and no-one picked it up. Don't think I'll trade it in though.
