I have one and I love it.
I was given mine by the gentleman who registered the plant.

It's heritage /origin is being revised, I believe.
It was registered as a hybrid between D. aliciae and D. capensis 'alba'.
I think the current belief is that the plant is a D. capensis variant.

I just got one about a month or so now. It was just a small starter so not a big plant yet. But in the time I have been growing it I have seen about a dozen new leafs sprouting.So far it looks to me like it is going to be bigger than my typical for sure.
Is this d.capensis?
