It is my mexi. No flower pic, never flowered yet. Very slow grower.

Looks a lot like mine - on the slow track to nowhere...
It supposiable only flowers after putting out a side shoot...so you are close.
I bet "Oaxaca".
I'm not sure I'd be complaining about such a healthy looking Mexi!!! Keep us posted on its progress

I really don't see anything different about this plant within the wide variation I've seen with everyone else's to suggest this is a different clone.
The only one I've seen that really seemed to have a really different growth habit from normal, was Fbrem's plant that had a whole bunch of growths all clumped up together instead of spreading long stolons.
I mostly agree with Rick from TN...
If you are looking for an unrelated clones for breeding, you need to get them from someone who knows the history/origin of the plant and will be honest about it.
Can anyone here give us some history about the Windy Hill clone?
I'll see Marilyn in 2 weeks at our OS meeting. I can ask then. Or you could email her. www.orchidmall.com/windy.hill
Yes she's the Queen of Mexipedium in the US. If anyone knows, she will.
Don't keep it wet. Mine flourished when I was too busy to water often and bloomed readily.
