Hey, has anyone ever heard of a species called N. harrisoniae?  Bird Rock was selling it, but that name is not on Luther's list of bromeliad binomials, or anywhere else that I can find.  I suspect it may be just another form of N. carolinae.  What do you think?

Hi Lisa, no, haven't heard of harrisoniae ?..it certainly looks like a carolinae form doesn't it ??...

Getting back to our dungsiana puzzle, for what it's worth, Elton saw "our" plant here a few years back and was quite happy it was dungsiana back then. However, as you would know, things change and it appears there may be some  confusion and possibly "new material" and "consolidations" in these small ampullacea and tigrina types, so we may see some newly classified species when Elton's Neo book comes out hopefully ?...Possibly could include your small mystery plant etc ?

I also have leuchophoea, but still quite young and no flowers for me to play with yet either. Hopefully our chilly Auckland winter will do the trick this year ?!

Cheers, Graeme

Does Leme have a Neo book in the works?  That would definitely be something worth having.  If it turns out that is the real dungsiana, then perhaps that other little guy could be, as Harry suggests, the real rubrifolia, and whatever is currently being called rubrifolia is really........... something else. 

*sigh*  More musical Neos. 'Twas ever thus.

Andreas great idea for a thread,

Some droolworthy Neos everybody.

I picked this one up as Neo monstruosum but I suspect it should be Neo monstruosa (colours like Red Gold but I can't find any photos of monstruosa)

I picked the one up on the right as Neo species ex Fairchild Gardens but I suspect it is a form of bahiana (a form of bahiana is on  the left)

Your first one appears to have been mislabeled, Rick.  Neo. Monstrosus (aka N. cruenta Rubra, also formerly circulated under the name N. hatschbachii) is a much tougher looking plant.  It is a true cruenta.

Lisa,

I think I've mixed my notes up.

Thanks for the reply.

Totara pete, love that 2nd one of yours, Neo eltoniana.thats another one I did not know about, you must have been hiding it away ?.  guttata is also a good choice, must go check how ours is going.

*sigh*  More musical Neos. 'Twas ever thus. 

Ha ha, Lisa - well put! However, Neos seem tone-deaf compared to the lilt of Aechmeas and Alcantarea orchestras! I wonder if Leme comes to any definitive conclusions re the Hylaeaicums in his new book. Does anyone know when it will be released?

I also really like that Neo. eltoniana - a newbie to me. And Neo. guttata is a winner too. For sun-tough species, Neo. 'Monstrosus' is sure hard to beat.

Here is another cool little species.

Neo. cyanea (Can anyone see that bold little hitch-hiker?)

Oh - and sorry, Lisa. I've never heard of Neo. harrisoniae either. Yours does appear to have an affinity with N. carolinae.

Hi everyone,

While re-reading the start of this thread the name sarmentosa var. chlorosticta seemed familiar to me in as much as I thought I had it in my collection. When I looked however mine was sarmentosa x chlorosticta.

Is it possible that the plant Andreas posted could be a hybrid from the same grex and not a species at all?

All the best, Nev.

Neo mucugensis

This isn't a favorite, but it does seem to be rare. The flowers do have a nice, but not strong smell that I didn't notice until I plucked the flowers so I could freeze some pollen.

Lisa,
I have this one too. N. harrisoniae. But mine are more blue/purple in the center than purple. I may have gotten it from Pam years ago. Nice plant and pups pretty good.

Anyone ever seen one of these? I got it from Karl Havelicek 10 years ago before he moved from Dana point to Hawaii. He called it Neo. Strawberry Banana Shake.
