    The seller sold me as richardianim but it definitely not. However, it seems does not like a ordinary lowii also, just wonder if it is lowii’s variety, lyannie.

    Any enlightenment is much appreciated.

    There is an interesting form of lowii that came from Sulawesi. Its different from the nominal form that we know. I saw some photos of it awhile back and it looks like your lowii. I will check if I still have the photo and I can post it here for your comparison but I think this is a lowii that came from that.

    Here is the photo of the plant that I saw. There were several more but I can't seem to find it. As you can see they have fine spots on the petals while the lowii that we know has bigger spots.

    Yeah, it is a bit like lowii from Sulawesi. I have one and bloomed every summer. However, as long as I remember, the bud of such kind of lowii has some small hairs as normal lowii but the one I posted has no hairs on the buds as lyannie. Just wonder if there is variation on it too.
