    The U. campbellina shots look wet and you said the moss was very shallow and the wood behind smooth. Does it rain once a day, several times a day, just a constant drizzle/dense fog?

    Was it hard to breathe at the high elevation?
    It rains multiple times a day---this area where campbelliana grows is at the base of the cliffs of Mt. Roraima, water pours off from the cliffs as well as the rain saturated clouds which frequently roll through the area.

    Moar Pics, still in the cloud forest:

    This particular clone of quelchii was found in the dead leaf liter axis of Brocchinia tatei. All other specimens of quelchii were growing lithophytically.


    Moar orchids:

    Masdevallia picturata, exclusively found only on Mt. Roraima:


    Do you see what I see?

    we affectionately named this plant, the 20 headed red dragon. unfortunately very unphotogenic, unless you have a ridiculous zoom.

    little red riding hood:


    ---Out of the Cloud Forest, Now on the Summit----

    U. quelchii, lithophytic:


    H. nutans:



    I want to make a living wall out of plants from Mt. Roraima:


    Smaller Scenic Pics:


    Drosera roraimae wants to be an epiphyte too...

    Genlisea:


    Now the Best, H. glabra. a little background---apparently, Brazil doesnt like the US so much, and ordered that all US Americans obtain visas, regardless of the time stayed. Stew, who managed the trip was unaware of this requirement till we got to the border....H. glabra on Mt. Roraima is only found on the Brazilian side of the mountain...so we had a decision to make: play safe, or go all in. We decided getting shot at was worth being one of the less-than-20-people-to-ever-photograph-H. glabra-in-the-wild. The fog provided great cover...and our mission was accomplished. Altogether, i illegally entered Brazil for about an hour and a half.


    H. glabra x nutans, aka H. nutans "giant"
