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

    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?

    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.
