  3. ok. here i have [first 2 pic mine] Myrmecodia erinacea. i have had 2 thus far. in the pics awesome spines. the 3rd pic is from a member of Ant Plant Cultivation on fb. i tried to do some digging on this but there r so many mislabeled pics out there or variations???

  7. does anyone have pics of Aechmea Brevicollis seeds?? does anyone else grow it??
  8. Looks like aphid of acari attack. We could see some holes in the tip of the leaves.
  9. Nice pictures Jay, and thanks for in situ observations 😉
  10. Of cause Derrick! Would you prefer that I send it by email?
  11. Hi, Frank the administrator here, I ran Ezhikovich's posting thru google translate (Russian) and this is how it came out. Some of our people want to take a shot at a possible answer for this person? Hello! Half of my plants began to deform their new leaves, and the old leaves began to curl. They grow in different conditions of humidity and temperature, some on the windowsill, and others in the orchidaria. No pests, fertilizers use Osmokot. What could be the problem? I would be grateful for your suggestions.
  12. - Привет! Половина моих растений начала деформировать свои новые листья,а старые листья начали сворачиваться. Растут в разных условиях влажности и температуры, некоторые на подоконнике, а другие в орхидарии. Нет вредителей, удобрения используют Осмокот. В чем же может быть проблема? Буду признателен за ваши предложения.
  13. Bonjour spine seem to be a modified adventitious roots how in culture can we go from root to spine, having a drier atmosphere can be ? jeff
  14. Aurelien. May I use a few of these photos in my tome.
  15. Thanks for this. I have removed it from my tome.
  16. I have collected Columnea crassifolia on many occasions in Chiapas, México and Guatemala. It is invariably found in upper foothill or middle elevation cloud forest. Never, not once, found it associated with ants. I agree with Aurélien's view that someone almost certainly mixed genera and confused with Codonanthopsis crassifolia, a VERY different-looking, near obligate Central American myrmecophyte in nature. Columnea linearis is a lowland tropical forest species that rarely makes it to low elevation Caribbean versant cloud forest in southern Central America. This is an example of a wild-source, cultivated Columnea crassifolia in my garden in Guatemala from 1,600 m in Quezaltenango Department, Guatemala. J
  17. Neotropical Myrmecophilous Melastomataceae. Most of these names are historic because all members of the tribe Miconieae are now placed in a sole genus Miconia. In my 2020 edition I hope to list all changes under Miconia along with as many synonyms as possible. Most species are shrubs or even small trees but some are hemi-epiphytic and occasionally truly epiphytic, even occurring in ant gardens. However, because they have so much interest to students of myrmecophytes I am listing all ant friendly species in my tome which is mostly reserved for epiphytic species. Allomaieta grandiflora, Blakea austin-smithii, Blakea chlorantha, Blakea formicaria, Blakea involvens, Blakea jativae, Blakea perforata, Blakea podagrica. Blakea podagrica subsp. ciliata, Blakea polyantha, Blakea punctulata, Blakea subconnata, Blakea subvaginata, Clidemia acostae, Clidemia allardii, Clidemia allardii subsp. maranonensis, Clidemia allardii, Clidemia ayangannensis, Clidemia ciliata, Clidemia ciliata var. testiculata, Clidemia cymosa, Clidemia collina, Clidemia crenulata, Clidemia ferox, Clidemia foliosa, Clidemia folsomii, Clidemia heptamera, Clidemia heterophylla , Clidemia inobsepta, Clidemia juruensis, Clidemia killipii, Clidemia lanuginosa, Clidemia myrmecina, Clidemia neblinae, Clidemia pilosa , Clidemia pubescens, Clidemia rodriguezii, Clidemia setosa, Clidemia trichogona, Clidemia spectabilis, Clidemia sprucei, Clidemia taurina, Clidemia tenebrosa , Clidemia tococoidea, Clidemia ventricosa, Conostegia dentata, Conostegia hispida, Conostegia inusitata, Conostegia setosa, Henriettella cuneata, Maieta guianensis, Maieta neblinensis, Maieta poeppigii, Merianthera burlemarxii, Miconia bailloniana, Miconia expansa, Miconia flaccida, Miconia hospitalis, Ossaea bullifera, Tococa aristata, Tococa bullifera , Tococa bullifera var. glabrata, Tococa capitata, Tococa caquetana, Tococa caudata, Tococa ciliata, Tococa cordata, Tococa coronata, Tococa filiformis, Tococa gonoptera, Tococa guianensis, Tococa hirta, Tococa lancifolia, Tococa lancifolia var. anaphysca, Tococa leticiana, Tococa macrophysca, Tococa macroptera, Tococa macedoi, Tococa macrosperma, Tococa obovata subsp. obovata, Tococa parviflora, Tococa parviflora var. mansenrichensis, Tococa tetramera, Tococa pauciflora, Tococa quadrialata, Tococa racemifera, Tococa rotundifolia, Tococa spadiciflora, Tococa stellata, Tococa stenoptera, Tococa stephanotricha, Tococa symphyandra, Tococa undabunda, Topobea gracilis, Topobea inflata, Topobea pluvialis.
  18. Another old accession, from Besançon in 1977!
  19. A specimen of our accession from Botanischen Tuinen, Utrecht, in cultivation since 1978! It correspond mostly to the heterotypic synonym C. stenophylla.
  20. Thank you for your comment. But I don't look very much into the H. moseleyanum variety. The branches are angular and the morphology of the tubers varies greatly, though it may be difficult to see in the photo. I'll check it out when it blooms.
  21. Aurelien. Having you back in the group has focused more of my attention here. One result is that I have found more information about this family (only Neotropical spp.) after searching for more information regarding Blakea spp., and ants. There is an enormous volume of information in this study, but it will require many long hours sorting out the epiphytic (and hemiepiphytc) myrmecophytes that I specialize in, because of course many are terrestrial species.
