Hi All,

This winter in Thailand, the weather is very very cold. So many plants are pushed to flower.

Last week when I walked around my shade cloth and saw something happan to my Hohenbergia corriea araujoi. It's a big surprise. My Hohen. lady is awaken. She has bloomed....LOL. I got this plants nearly 10 years ago. I think I won't see its flower.

Hi udo69 - Wow! what a plant, and what a fantastic shade house you have.

How big is it? It looks enormous. Is it a profesional nursery or just your private collection?

Sorry for all the questions but it is just so mouth-watering to look at.

All the best, Nev.

Hi Nev and Germaine,

Thank for the comment. I am a vigorous collector. I've sold and traded some plants sometoimes but not a trader.

In Thailand, Almost plant enthusiasts collect plants since they was very young. When they grow up. Their colletion also enlarge. I also collect plants since I was very young descended from my father. He is an orchid collector. My interest was expand to many varieties of plants but Bromeliads are my fevorite. I collect broms > 10 years.

In the middle of last year,sadly, my previous shade house was destroyed by summer strom. I'm not a loser. Hang in there you gonna be alright;-). Eventually, I started buliding my new shade house. It was built at the end of last year. It is about 1,800 square meters. It is one and a half of the previous one. Now it nearly fulls of plants. I'm also a hybridizer. I hybridize my own plants like Lisa and others. It's a difficult task but I love to do so.
