Hi Jim,
Thank you for your response! It still was not open today - strange. 2 days
of being fully formed, but only slightly open. (maybe that's another hint.)
I took some photos and will figure out how to get them up for you guys to
see.

There may be tons of species and hybrids; however I know what I've had, or
have; so the process of elimination will be a simple one, since I really
haven't had many of these types.

For example; the only H. tubispathus I've had, or have, are texensis,
tubispathus, and tubispathus roseus. (Which it isn't, obviously.) I have
not had any Habranthus hybrids.

I'll try photobucket later on and hopefully you guys can help narrow it
down further.

Thanks, Jude
