The original introduction of this species by friend and mentor Steve Doonan from Taiwan in the late 60's or early 70's. This is the typical species and differs from ones seen with twisted leaves which were from tissue culture. Divisions of the plant given to us by Steve. Steve told us this survived in a pot outside one extreme winter for him at 0F.
