Hi Gonzer

Looks Alcantarea to me. Species is tougher. The white flowers and silvery foliage suggest A. glaziouana. The more I grow the more they all look the same to me.

cheers Bruce

I agree with Bruce, Gonzer. If the flowers are fragrant I reckon that will seal it. Not sure I'd hybridise with it though as there are so many more stunning Alcantareas. Where abouts are you to grow these plants outdoors by the look of it? Have I met you? Cheers, Pedro (Peter Tristram)
