  1. they are plants that like a humid atmosphere, so pay attention to their watering neither too much (with the risk of rotting) nor not enough (with the risk of desiccation) the second seem to be a hydnophytum moseleyanum ( old name H.papuanum)
  2. your myrmecodia ( may be a beccarii) seem in good shape. it is a plant from garden center ?
  3. have you a picture? what are yours growing conditions ?
  4. excellent 🤩 for mine a S.imberbis ( but also all my rubiaceae) I use now tree fern root in plate. I put my plant on the plate which is horizontal, with a little living sphagnum moss around it, so that it takes root well, then I hang it on the edge of my terra. when the plate is dry I saturate it with rainwater for fertilizer I use NPK : 13-19-19 commonly and some times 25-5-5 (exceptionally) FRANK how old is your plant ? you had it initially with flowers and drupe?
  5. 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

  15. Bonjour rarely cleistogamous and sometimes heterostylous . may be selfpollinate , pollinate by the ant although ants are ' piétre'( in french I can not find the right word in English)pollinator , may be also by the wind or other critters where did you get your 'pulvinata' ? this label Myrmecodia cf pulvinata for my part is not correct, rather cf tuberosa 'pulvinata', pulvinata according to Huxley and JEBB is part of tuberosa, it is not a species apart ,or simply Myrmecodia sp ,when you are not sure of his determination
