G. nitida var. armstrongii no data
the champion
The archetype of this plant. Amateur buyers will refuse your plants if it doen't look exactly like this! Anything else is discarded as a hybrid. They don't seem to realize that there are a multitude of intermittant forms, all of which are just as worth collecting.
In my greenhouse, it has a tendancy of loosing its roots easily, so I now keep it warmer and in a shallow pot. Requires a rich soil.
