Hi all

I thought I'd share a few photos of seedlings of Wer. lutheri. The seed was collected by Bruce in Panama, germinated by him but sent south in case the summer heat cooked more of the babies. Those od you in the BSI will have seen the article about the different leaf transitions with this species and others. Interestingly the ones I pricked out early and potted in a well nourished mix seem to have bypassed the 'pseudo-bulb' phase, as you can see, though there's still time. The 2nd lot are fattening, as are the rest in the undernourished cocopeat. All very interesting! I hope they survive to maturity.

The next issue could have a wonderful article about travels in Colombia. It's a great journal and well worth the $45 (blatant advertising!)

Cheers, Pedro

Hi Pedro

I was thinking the same thing after I read the article, I had to go and check out my seedlings. With plenty of fertiliser, as you'd expect they weren't showing the pseudo-bulb phase.
Here are some snaps from an old citrus plantation we wandered into that was loaded in Epiphytes, although any Orchids tend to get stripped regularly. These are Werauhia lutheri. There were also really nice little Guzmania sanguinea var brevipedicellata. While we're advertising the Heliconia Society International will be holding next years conference in El Valle, just down the road from where we saw these babies. Info available at heliconia.org click on conference.
That concludes your plant society public announcement.

cheers Bruce
