Since when did this become a gratrix?? I thought it was a species or a variety of barbigerum. I have a couple near flowering size. They have thick succulent leaves and they grow on limestone I believe.

We had this discussion at length in this thread:
One wonders, if the possibility of the existence of two strains of sulivongii can be excluded: a laotian variety of barbigerum (Schuiteman & Bonnet) and a vietnamese variety of gratrixianum (Averyanov & Gruß)?!

Ok I had a look. I think it's a lot of rubbish. This is nothing remotely like gratrixianum. I will call it sulivongii. :)

Very nice flower.

Mike, I'm partially with you. I showed my P. sulivongii here few weeks ago and I must say, shape and length of the leaves let me tend more to P. gratrix than to P. barbigerum. Maybe in the end it's really P. sulivongii.
