Nice! Be sure to post some more pictures once they're settled in and no longer stressed from shipping.

It is sibthorpiodes, correct - however japan and sibthorpiodes are two different plants, albeit similar looking.

Yes, I realize that they're two different plants, but here in the US both names usually mean the same plant.

That was definitely true when sp. Japan was new to the states. Many people thought that it was Sibthorpioides with a new name to make it more exciting - however as it gained popularity, differences were noticed. By now, most people acknowledge that they are different and sell them as such.
