Bruce, you'll have to set up a cool house with a water wall, for these beautiful plants! Still space at Greenstock!

Good luck with the seed-raising Tash! Next you'll be on a plane to habitat!

Cheers Pedro

Tash this will give you an idea of what your sanguinolenta will look like after flowering . This W . gigantea flowered last year , it has a few pods ripening and the pup growing along nicely , with all then old Yasi'fied leaves ready to remove  ;
iT IS NOT JUST PLAIN GREEN .

Hi Michael

Nice to see a fully grown W gigantea! Mine died during a winter a few yrs back. At least W sanguinolenta and kupperiana struggle through though some of them die too. It's not such an easy genus to grow - maybe Jason should have left it in Vriesea!   Wink Grin

Cheers, Pedro

Thanks so much for the pics aroideana, how cool is that, so where the flower spike is coming out of, is the old head of the plant, right?  And the new head is actually the pup?  do I have that right?
It looks amazing and so big too Smiley

At least they seem to like the heat up here or mine one has so far. I'd love to know it's age roughly is Bruce is still around, since he said it might be one of his babies.  Bruce?  Smiley

So does anyone know if W. Edna Shigii still exists? Has it been reproduced?  Is the one in Bruce's photos the only one?

Thanks,
Tash

Hi All,

Here in Thailand I've found out that some Werauhia thrive fast. I have 3 species, W.gigantea, W.kupperiana and W.sanguinolenta. W.sanguinolenta I grew from seeds got from BSI seedback many years back. It grows quite fast and bloom every year, also set lot of seeds. Other two also grow quite well. My kupperiana is about 120 cms. across at 5 years in my hand. I'd had W.woodsonii from Pedro but died already this year during very hot summer. So sad. As I know almost of them are highland species and couldn't tolerate heat. Very delicate species but I love to grow.

Cheers
Yong
