Interesting T. tectorum and T. heteromorpha

gonzer_gwAugust 25, 2010

This's the caulescent form of tectorum with a very long inflo. On the bottom is the small form of heteromorpha which finally bloomed after many years.

They just wont bloom here.

Hi gonzer,

Great pics and great plants. Just love that tectorum. If I could ask, have you grown that as a hanging plant, or do you have it sprawling across a surface of some sort? Fantastic specimen.

Cheers, Paul

It's a hanger Paul. Although I have a few specimens that have rooted on cork hanging allows the plant to fully expand 360°.
Bob, don't feel bad, these guys are VERY shy bloomers.

I think this is the same as your first plant Gonzer. I have now started taking pictures with the label when I get a new airplant because this brain just can't remember them all....

Cabo, howzabout some different views of that plant? From that lone shot it resembles T. werdermanii.

Hey Gonzer - see if these are any better. It is in a tree surrounded with roses so a little difficult....LOL

and caulescent is a familiar name to me and not werdermanii but you never know with me... :-)

Well, it's not a form of tectorum, that's for sure. just from the sheer size of T. latifolia would be my guess but the abundance of scales is weird. It really looks like a monster pupurea. Let's wait for bloomage.

Wouldn't be an odd form of straminea would it?

Andy is right - found a picture with the label - straminea tall white. I'll post another picture when it blooms.

I've never seen an example of that plant although I've seen them for sale.

Woohoo! I think I just earned myself a cookie...off to go hunt in the kitchen (although I think I will be disappointed).
