    If it is not pulsing then it is not happy and may be on its way out. But that is a xenia.

    My first thought was also it is Xenia. But the arms do look rather thick... But then again, there are many different types.
    Also, I do not like the white parts / patches. Should be more uniform in colour. And pulsing. Unless you have to strong a flow on them. That could prevent them from really expanding.
