Hi Japie,

As requested, here is my rubrovittata. As you can see it is still a young'un, it basically stops growing in winter here in NZ and is quite slow for me. The red marking colours are starting to be enhanced after having it under white poly-weave plastic, so getting plenty of light and warmth at the moment.

Cheers, Graeme

That does bare a resemblance to rubrovittata. You'll know for sure if big, light blue, nice smelling flowers show up.

I found a couple more seedlings hiding out in the yard but nothing exciting. Only the one I showed is of any interest at this point. I've had no luck putting pollen on it, nor have I had any luck with Neo. mucugensis as a seed parent.

No wonder I didn't recognize it on the quiz.  It looks pretty different than mine.  Do you have a side shot, Graeme?  I always identify it with an almost marmazon pattern, along with a unique leaf shape, and the color threw me off too.
