Here a photo of C.shanxiense, the first flower from a batch of seedlings obtained from Bill Steele (Spangle Creek Labs, USA) in October 1998. So this is their 5th year of growth in pot culture in the greenhouse. The seedlings multiply even before they reach flowering size, some have 3-6 shoots!

C.shanxiense is a sensitive species and not suitable for the beginner. They won't stand any mistake in cultivation. However, they don't seem to have special requirements. The seedlings were treated like all the other Cyps in the greenhouse.
