Couple of Phals, bought for $1 each on clearance at a grocery store. Just 'cause they stopped blooming.
D. regia, from root cuttings 12/2014
H. minor from the massive planting in the Highland Elevation House at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I only received a division because, during my meeting with the staff there, one person from the public faceplanted into their planting. Broke much of it to pieces. It was sad, but fortuitous.
The planting at ABG, taken the year before I visited to swap plants with them:
minor, Clay Co., GA
N. maxima has officially reached the ceiling!!
Love that Dyeriana! And the maxima is earning its name I see ;-)

Then I grew them into monsters. I like the collection to look at natural as possible, so I try to cover up all the glass and aluminum and benches with foliage and hanging baskets wherever I can. The begonias are particularly excellent at creating a backdrop for other, smaller plants.
Was hanging from a rafter, camera in one hand, to take this overview shot. Entrance to the room is to the right, and research to the left. We have 8 greenhouses in total... 90% research, 10% cool plants for teaching.
Black-eyed Susan Vine
Crappy shot, but another T. duratii about to flower.
Cape Primrose, Gesneriaceae
Tubby wubby wittle ant plants
Aeschynanthus speciosus, perhaps my favorite gesneriad
Clerodendrum ugandense, Blue Butterfly Flower
This is the ancestral form of rubra from Taylor Co., GA. Very cool plant from a very cool friend.
Crappy shot of my Stylidium debile carpet
psittacina from Baldwin Co., AL, among the big stretching leucophylla fields
filiformis, Florida Red

"Tubby wubby" is in fact the correct Latin terminology describing stout, trunk-like appendages.
Does the cape primrose go by any other names? I have a similar (or maybe identical) looking plant known as "Flying Violet" or Streptocarpella.
