Hi Andy

Great looking plant, from a Hoh-lovers perspective! You realise the proof is in the flowering though LOL. Seems to fit the description below - I'll be looking out for it in September! Can you divulge the source?

Cheers, Pedro

Hohenbergia lanata  Pereira & Mountiho, Bradea 3: 88, 92, 97. 1980
Plant flowering ca. 1.1m high with 6 rosulate leaves forming a  tubular utriculum.
Leaves ligulate 80-100cm. long,
Sheath narrow-ovate, 20cm. long, both sides chestnut brown and brown lepidote, the upper third edges densely spined, spines up to 5mm. long,
Blades linear,.ca. 90 cm. long, 2-4cm wide, green, both sides inconspicuous lepidote, tip acute or obtuse and mucronate, edges towards the base densely spined, spines to 5mm. long, gradually getting smaller towards the top,

Related to H. ramageana Mez, this new species is separated immediately in much longer branches, and in the length of the sepals, and other details evident in the description.

Yeah, the rate that it is growing I'm not holding my breath for it to bloom.  The source's plant hasn't grown/pupped much since I got it so that won't help much.  I am almost 99% sure that it originated from Pam.  But I don't know if she still has it in her inventory.

Which reminds me, the other Hoh from B. Marx's garden did color up...but still no flowers.  I'll try to grab a picture in another day or two...

Here is a picture of my Hoh. lanata from over 2 years ago (around the time I got it).

Very interesting plant Andy. I like the fine white striations on the leaves and the upright leaves, very unusual. Out of interest, what is the brom to the right of the lanata in the first photo with the broad purple marking and green albo leaves. Looks like some unusual Aechmea fasciata form?

Regards,
Craig.

It is Aechmea Kiwi.  I haven't had it grow well for me, not sure what I need to do to make it a bit healthier.

Thanks Andy. I love this Hoh, and am convinced it is the real Macoy.

Pedro - I purchased one of these from Tropiflora in 2010, labeled as Ho. lanata, but it did not survive the gassing. I asked for two, but Brian Weber would only part with one...just as well!
