I spotted this, amongst others, at a butterfly world. Kids go there for the butterflies, I go for the plants...
Might try get a cutting next time ;)
Its beautiful, reminds me of a bird of paradise but the flower isnt the same.
I was thinking it was similar to Beloperone but not sure.
Greenlarry - your plant may be Megaskepasma erythrochlamys.
Wow thanks Flora. There's lots of plants Im not familiar with there, Id love to show em all but this is a house plant forum.
If you're after ID's, Name that plant is the place to go. If it's in a pot, it's fair game for discussion here, IMHO. There's also a tropical forum, although 8/9 doesn't really fit that category for outdoor plants... in which case they'd be appropriate to discuss on the perennial forum.
Larry, be sure to ask for a cutting...no swiping! If you ask, you might just end up with all kinds of cuttings! If you're caught snitching, you might get a dirty look or even asked to leave.
That's a beautiful plant! I hope that you'll post pictures of the others somewhere! I'd love to see them. Did you get any shots of butterflies?
Ah I remember that forum now, thanks for the reminder!
Rhizo, next time I will ask about the plants and maybe get a cutting or two.
And yes I got loads of butterfly pics, so did my daughter.
Heres she is sat next to a whopper:
Wow, she's wearing the right shirt too! Never seen a butterfly like that, nice.
Yes and shes quite the photographer too!
Heres a photo she took of a pink bluebell 2 years ago when she was 6!
You know, we should start a thread of bugs on our plants!
Very beautiful butterfly!
Well I'm a fan. That's a good pic!
Not only is the butterfly beautiful, but he/she is the largest ever seen. WOWEE!
Larry, your daughter is adorable. She's a little cutie. Talented photographer, too.
Pink Bluebell is a beauty. Toni
Thanks guys! Well I better get ready to pick the kids up from school! GWing is just too addictive...
