Myrmecodia tuberosa on the Philippines

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I just returned from a trip to the Philippines and took several pictures of ant plants I found while ascending Mount Hamiguitan. I guess most / all of them are simply Myrmecodia tuberosa. Excuse me if I'm wrong since I'm more familiar with Nepenthes and other carnivorous plants in general.

Kind regards,
Marco

Great photos, Marco.  They are particularly interesting since we see so few photos of wild P'ppine myrmecodias. My experience with a couple of accessions so far is that they develop root spines much later than myrmecodias from other origins, so are inermous for a couple years.
