They do it on purpose David to give us sleepless nights and grey hairs from working through books and sites! Still it's worth it just to enjoy their beauty

might just be able to help you out here, - i have one which looks the same variety, ofcourse mine is much smaller as it is a young plant, but if i am right it is a P. 'Cream Delight'. i bought mine from ebay last year for around £6 - but me thinks it will be a few years before it reaches this size. i'll take a pic for you and post it!

just added some pic's for you David have a look i can't remeber the guys id name on ebay but my plant is a root division so you never know he may well offer them again this year! it does look very simular to this picture, and the picture of this his mother plant on ebays plant was just like this one in yours! may take a few years before it looks like this one but well worth the wait me thinks!
