Hi All,

I got seeds from BSI seed bank many years back as H.augusta. When they grow up to very big plants but still not bloom yet. I'm not sure about what they are. I've never seen a real H.augusta published everywhere. Pedro showed me some pic of H.augusta in habitat. It's defenitely different. The size is very big more than 1.5 meters tall. Do anyone can identify this plant or I have to wait for the inflorescences?

Cheers/Yong

They look more like blanchetii, Yong. Are the leaves very stiff and leathery? I like them! Pedro

Stiff leaves. I also have 2 different forms of H.blanchetii. One is very small about 30 cms. I got from Tropiflora. Another is half size of this one I got from someone here in Thailand. Quite different from this one.

Yes very well grown Yong. I can't help but I can say that it looks nothing like my Hohenbergia augusta's.

Here is one growing in shade at Mt Cootha GB in Brisbane. It is a big plant. They can look a bit different when sun grown or bright light. Whatever your one is Yong it sure looks great.

Yong I took these pictures for you thismorning.
Foliage is very thin and extremely soft. Often shows green marble texture which bleeches with alot of sun.

Hi Brod and Matt,

Your plants look different from mine. My plants are more upright. The foliage is very think and spines are black and very large. Thank for the pictures. However I have to wait until it bloom.

Hi Guys,

Brod's photo does look like the augusta shown in the link on FCBS ?

Yong - I agree with Pedro, yours has a closer looking leaf width and tip shape to blanchetii than augusta ? Maybe your high humidity and good feeding has them looking bigger and more upright ? ...stunning they are anyway !

Matt - your plants look very much like Hoh. burle-marxii, not augusta ?...Could this be a mis-name someone's given you?...I say this because I am a sad cat tonight because I have lost both my burle-marxii seedlings I had to winter cold/rot this year. They looked identical to yours, that marbling you mention is a true BM trait. I just buried the last one tonite, so a bit of learning experience for your truly, leaving them out in the unheated shadehouse over winter is a no-no in Auckland...they don't like the near zero degree temps that's for sure !
Cheers,
Graeme

Graeme that's sad to hear mate. Whilst there are soo many highs in growing and collecting broms, you always feel the downs when loosing the ones you love.

In regards to my plant, I believe it to be very very different to Hoh. burle-marxii. Whilst I am yet to see Hoh. burle-marxii in the flesh (will see it in a couple of weeks) I believe it to be much harder and it will colour to a deep purple when in full sun conditions. Hoh. burle-marxii is in Australia but in recent years has it arrived here.
I've always seen a relationship thou between Hoh. augusta, Hoh. rosea & Hoh. burle-marxii in there form, shape and also marbled foliage. Awesome plants forsure!

Yeah thanks Matt...interesting what you say re rosea and augusta, I don't have either myself, so can't comment further, just an observation I made re my young plants I had.

Out of interest, how old are your plants in the photo ?...Have they flowered or pupped yet ? Did they come from a mother plant you've seen or are they seed grown ?

Hope you get to see a real BM soon !...They are cool plants I reckon too.

Not sure on age Graeme as the pup was attached to the mother when I bought them. I had sourced another Hoh. augusta from a different collector here in OZ but to my disapointment it rotted. It did look exactly the same. I've had alot of luck with the plants in the photo thou and I have a feeling the mother will flower soon, perhaps this summer.

I totally agree on b-m, it is a real stunner and perhaps the best looking foliage Hohenbergia of them all. I'm actually surprised it wasn't bought to Aus much ealier.
