Not speciosum, but a related species. It might be the natural hybrid Den. xdelicatum.

I also think that it looks like Den x delicatum (Specio-kingianum is the human-made version) It could be a more complex hybrid, but the Den speciosum and Den kingianum ancestors are still the main ones.

I think that the odds are very good. At least at my house, Den. x-delicatum (Den Delicatum, Den Specio-kingianum) is one of the most vigorous plants in the group. In a few years, you will probably be eager to share pieces of it with friends- it can get quite large, and does that much faster than either parent.

I have been told it grows well mounted on trees in southern California.

I see no reason why it wouldn't... I grow it in shallow pots (bulb pans) since it spreads out - the extra surface area and low form makes the monster a bit more stable.
Here along with a Den.speciosum var. grandiflorum... it's the season

My Aussie Dens are totally outside. They get winter low temperatures routinely in the low 40's F and occasionally lower, into the mid 30's F for a few hours. I don't particularly dry them out (I just water less in winter) Summers on the coast are a little more temperate than inland, but it can still get fairly hot. (People farther inland don't have any problem with them either, though) I HAVE found that while the tough leaves seem like they should be able to take full sun, I have toasted a few. So I do give them a little shading in summer.
