Monolena is such a mystery to me. seems every pic of diff ones r named primuflora. r ppl just giving them that name or r there that many variants? an i was sent a few Calycogonium hispidulum but these i have r not. i believe them to a Monolena.. 1st 2 pics r Medinilla succulenta, 3rd Monolena wendlandii, 4th Monolena trichopoda, 5th Monolena primuflora, 6th Monolena primuflora flower, 7th Medinilla scortechinii flowering, 8th & 9th received as Calycogonium hispidulum [NOT] amuse a Monolena?? 10th & 11th Monolena sp. [Ecuador], 12th & 13th Monolena??
  7. this one is freaking awesome with the blue flowers
  8. when i first received this plant i couldn't believe how tall it was. then i realized didn't have a terrarium tall enough for it to go into. it was the 3rd or 5th ant plant i bought in 17' or 18' i think. i cut 4 branches off an stuck them in spag moss. hoping to get them to at least root. at that time i was asking around abt who else might have tried to grow out cuttings from their ant plants. i couldn't find anyone, i was also being ask the same question. and if i did i have forgotten all abt it. again i was looking to throw cuttings away if they weren't producing caudex's. to make space for for other plants. so i pulled the cuttings up a few days ago to see if their caudex had starting growing. i bury all my cuttings deep just in-case some might have rotted back a little on the ends. the ones that were growing to slowly i was going to through away. to my surprise they all had started both. great roots an very good starts on their caudex. also right after i took cuttings 2 cuttings started fruiting. again this has happened to a few other species cuttings.
  9. thus far Hydnophytum orichalcum has quickly become my fav amoung my ant plants collection. simple because of its way diff caudex from most others. i'm training my mother plant bonsai style. as u can see in the first 3 pics. i decided when i first got into ant plants i had to trim back a few plant due to growing them in terrariums. less expensive terrariums r on avg 18"-24" tall. i could kick myself now for selling for selling my 180 gallon tall [4'] tanks. oh well live an learn. i'm wrking on a greenhouse outside for summer an one in my basement for winter. after memorial day i always put my tropical plants outside for the summer. the 4th, 5th, an 6th pics r of my cuttings i took when i first received this plant around may of last yr. abt 20 cuttings. to make space for for other plants i pulled the cuttings up a few days to see if they where starting to take good root an if they had starting growing out their caudex. the ones that were growing to slowly i was going to through away. to my surprise they all had started both. great roots an very good starts on their caudex. i have other cuttings of diff ant plants that seem to take longer to grow out their caudex an a few others that r freaking awsome. i will show those in a diff tread later soon.
