I think we've all seen the lovely foliage of Macodes petola -- I think Rob posted a photo here awhile back. Mine is in bloom, so I thought everyone might like to see what the flowers look like. They are tiny -- slightly over 1/4" in width.

Cool. I have a couple pots about a week away from blooming, now I know what to expect!

Thanks

I sent my plant to a judging center last weekend (Cincinnati) and learned that it is Macodes petola v. javonica.

Rob, it will be interesting to see if yours are the same...

What makes it v. javonica? I've never even heard of that variety, but what do I know.

I think that if you got yours from Porters, and Bill got his through John D., then ours are all the same... Oh what a tangled web we weave.

Yes, mine's from Porters. I have the original tag, but there's no ID on the back. There is a symbol on the front that I can't quite make out. I'll see if I can find out the source.
