  9. Bonjour have you try some spore sowing? ROBBIN C MORAN to the missouri botanical garden made a very good article on potato fern. S.brunei is find on Costa rica -Panama-Colombia -Ecuador S.bismarckii and S. tuberosa Ecuador and Peru (1100 to 2000m) S.brifons in amazonia lowlands of Colombia,Ecuador-Peru (200 to 800m) microgramma and solanopteris are sister genera not the same microgramma : "lacks tubers, has narrowly lanceolate scales on the rhizomes, smooth or wartyspores and usually lacks hairs among the sporangia " solanopteris :"tubers,small,round scales on the rhizomes, spinyspores,and slender club-shaped hairs among the sporangia " jeff
  10. magnifique it seem to be S.thekii , their distribution stem is very differente than these others 2 ( or 3). jeff
  11. OK , but in the "flora vitiensis nova " we find these 2 S.imberbis and wilsonii in malesia 2 also. S.imberbis : "epiphytic srub with short branches arising from ant-inhabited tubers , sparingly know at elevation up to 430m in dense forest , with white corollas , the only dated specimen bore flowers and fruit in may ". Huxley & Jebb find some difference but for they due to developmental stages or the vagaries of drying . where is the truth ? jeff

  15. 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.
