Hi All,

I got this plant many years back as an unknown Alcantarea. At that period only few Alcans. are available in Thailand Al.imperialis, Al.vinicolor and Al.odorata. Someone told me this should be Al.glaziuoana. I had no idea and gave it that name. Thereafter when I've collected many Alcantareas and have found it's different from A.glaziuoana. It's similar to Al.nahoumii I got from Peter. By the way my Al.nahoumii is too small to compare. What do you think about this plant? Is it true Al.glaziuoana or should be Al.nahoumii as I suppose to?

Cheers/Yong

Yong,

My guess would be Alc odorata.

Cheers,

Hi Yong, really you will need to bloom it as some forms of odorata and glaziouana can look very similar. Glaz will have white fragrant flowers and larger, inflated floral bracts whereas odorata will have yellow fragrant flowers and a taller, more erect spike with smaller fb. There are so many forms, maybe a bunch of different species really. Glaz is more coastal, even overlooking the ocean and odorata is inland. Pedro
