  1. Anthorrhiza

    Frank Advanced Member Administrators 138 posts (IP: Posted 8 minutes ago I have consolidated a number of Anthorrhiza posting in this pinned topic. Included is taxonomic material by Derrick Rowe as well as his habitat photos from an earlier trip of his to PNG. Thanks very much for posting these links and materials here Derrick! These photos are not just Anthorrhiza photos, they were "first ever on the internet photos of plants in this genus!" They inspired a 2017 trip to PNG for more photos by Andreas Wistuba. Andreas's photos are in the topics you see below this overview of the genus. Thank you Andreas for these magnificent photos Between the 2 of you, Derrick and Andreas, we have made a "jump to hyperspace" in our knowledge and vision of Anthorrhizas. (Yes, I have been watching some Starwars DVDs lately........laughing) Forum Administrator, Frank PS. Sorry Jeff, somehow this post got tangled with one of your. I am working on getting that straightened out.

  7. Bonjour The two mine, adult and that have fruited abundantly, I lost them unfortunately. They began to lose all their foliage, then were invaded by a kind of moss that made them die. Also, I made a fatal mistake, I distributed seeds everywhere and I did not worry about me, if I could sometimes find one or two Drupe, it would be enchanting. jeff
