To all, sorry I confused the issue, thinking about H. calyptratum instead of cybister. These seem to be two of more challenging species to grow, let alone flower. Even some Cybister hybrids come out later and some are not up yet. The species is a gem. I killed my only cybister seedlings five years ago and have not had either plant bloom since...it must've been the move from Gainesville to Tampa that triggered it. That moved killed the seedlings as humid salt air did not agree with them. Now I am growing them in coir, crushed/washed lava rock and sand in clay containers and they tolerate it. The clayptratum, for me, is grown on a simalr mix, but more coir and maybe even some peat and pine bark. As for pamianth these mixes and humidity killed mine. Gee, it sounds like I've killed many a good species. Well, that is how ya learn! Kevin Preuss - hot and dry in Florida! but Leptochiton quitoensis is blooming!
