I am happy to finally have this Hohenbergia in bloom.  It was labeled 'Hohenbergia Burle Marx'...which I take to mean 'from Burle Marx's garden'.  The leaves look similar to Gonzer's plant that he showed a while ago, but the inflo looks a little different.  Mine isn't colored up at all (at least yet), the inflo is branched, and there is only one cluster of flowers on each branch.  Gonz, can you post your pictures here to compare?  Does this make it look like a lot of these Hohenbergias 'from Burle Marx's garden' may in fact be hybrids?

Here it is this summer with really nice form:

Here is it now.  It has been forming the spike for a long time and it is moving slowly in our cool weather.

Cool looking plant, and it defies gravity too!

Hi Andy,

Just love that plant!  If you get some seed from that fella it would be great fun to grow it out and see what sorts of variations you get.  If you got some even-more-spineys than that one, they really would be rippers!

Cheers, Paul

Just too much material with this genus, Gonz.  Infinitely fun...

Random joking side topic: has anyone tried to create a Billbergia x Hohenbergia (or reverse) bigeneric?  Wouldn't it still be either a xBillbergia or xHohenbergia??  Life's unanswerable questions...

Ah...  I see it's got its gravitational pull sorted out and has come back to earth now.  Wink

As for the Bill. x Hoh. question, I think we decided earlier that would be a xBillhenbergia.  Now, what would you get if you crossed a Hohenbergia with a Hohenbergiopsis, a Neoregelia with a Neoglaziovia, or an Ananas with a Pseudananas?  It may be best to avoid the issue by not attempting any of those.  xAnanananas anyone?

Following Gonzer's lead, I'll go a xHohohiopsis for one, and I'm sort of taken by xNeoglazigeliovia for the other.  Can't beat xAnanananas though.

Hohly heck! Nice Hohs!
And Hoh, hoh, hoh to Gonz and everyone too!

This is the Hoh I got from Pedro Bak in 2006 which is similar to Andy's but seems to also have differences. I'd take some more pics if it weren't so cold and wet outside (Summer's gone for a hike here!). An earlier blooming is on florapix. Must check that belated id from Uwe too - the utriculosa I have from Europe is a different-looking beast so must take a pic. If I grew PB's Hoh outside it might colour up more so I'll try that with a couple of pups - it hates the cold and wet though which is why I had taken it into a tunnel house.

Dutch Hoh!

Bruce, Pedro,

Those Hoh. b-m's are brilliant.  With those markings, I'd love to see one that's had not too much tucker and a damn good cook.

Lisa, no way!  I get into enough trouble as it is  Shocked

Cheers, Paul

I love it, great names.  I would love one of those b-m's, but I'm not sure if they would like our winter.  Friends bought one at the NO WBC and I'm watching it to see if they can grow it well (as well as watching for pups!).  It did not like the first winter at all, but it recovered well this summer.  So hopefully it will have adjusted.  I shouldn't even think about it until I get my shade cloth house built...

Hi Andy

No problem for me - left outside with temps down to 2C and a lot of cold nights below 6C and day temps below 18C, and often wet. Hell, it's like winter atm - rainy and cool! I moved the castellanosii, lemei and others inside after they started to show the tell-tale sighs of too cold and wet. The Vrieseas were in Heaven though.

Paul, full of food to maximise summer growth (if it ever returns). Third time lucky importing the dark form.

Cheers, Pedro
