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.
Neat pictures gonzer. Its probably the only way I will ever see those blooms.
They just wont bloom here.
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.
It's a hanger Paul. Although I have a few specimens that have rooted on cork hanging allows the plant to fully expand 360Â°.
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).
