Hi Guys,

   I've not seen any pictures of Guzmania mounted but many in situ pictures they seem to be growing epiphytically.  I have mounted two G. hybrids today to see how they'd do.  They look great on a log!

   Has anyone else mounted Guzmania? 

   The root run in the pot was very small and they're wirey similar to Tillandsia so I would assume they're more for stabilization.

Thanks!

I have a number of Guzies mounted, for me they they take like ducks to water. I'm planing to have one of each I have mounted on a tree. Just make sure the tank is well watered and a bit of spray fertilizer helps as they are hungry broms

Brod,

  Thank you so much!

  I'd love to see pictures!!!  I was resistant to mounting because all of the lit. I've read about them has ruled against mounting them!!

Here is a photo of my G. 'Denise' mounted on a tree. It is just about to flower. I'll try and remember to post when it's fully developed

Hi Joshua

I've been trying to post images of Guzmanias growing epiphytically but have not been having ant luck. Can someone please give me some hints. I usually use the option above with no troubles but lately it takes ages then it starts loading again and nothing happens. Do I sound like I know nothing about computers ?.

thanks in anticipation Bruce

Bruce, better to use Photobucket.  Upload your photos to there and then copy and paste the IMG code to your message.  That way you get a full sized photo rather than a thumbnail, and no ads attached.

Hi All

Sorry for the delay getting back. Technology scared me for a little while. I'm not a fan of signing up for new things, anyway attached are some snaps of Guzmanias doing their thing in nature. This trip was to Panama in 07.
Thanks for the tip Lisa The bigger images are great.

cheers Bruce

Hi Bruce,

It sure is great to see those Guzmanias doing their thing.  They're all beaut pics, but that one with with the Guz. musaica? going up the trunk of the tree is a ripper.  Thanks for sharing them.

Cheers, Paul

musaica is just made to be mounted , the way the stolons come out are just so perfect for climbing up a tree . Peter had a beautiful colony going at Whyanbeel .

Whats happened to the usual way of posting pics here ? It was working so well .. I dislike photobucket .. will have to use picassa if I have to .

Hi Paul

That clump was the view sitting on the toilet with the door open at the Kuna Yala Meeting Facility on the El Llano- Carti Rd. Locality where Heliconia xanthovillosa comes from.
I went back 5 years later and they were in flower but I lost my images when my laptop died. You can also see Cochliostema growing on the right.

Brod not sure of what type of lingulata it is but was growing in the same locality. The plant was much sought after for breeding as it produces lots of pollen on a regular basis for hybridising.
