I spotted this, amongst others, at a butterfly world. Kids go there for the butterflies, I go for the plants...
Any ideas?

Might try get a cutting next time ;)

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?

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:

Very beautiful butterfly!

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
