    Ant Plants

    These were gifts from DaveS at last year's NECPS show. First is Hydnophytum formicarium, second is Myrmecodia tuberosa:

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Those are looking great! Did you have them outside during the summer? Mine did much better outside this past summer than in my terrariums.
    Have you used fertilizer on them?

    Yes, they summer outside under a south facing overhang which let's them catch full sun until around midday with bright shade the rest of the day. My fertilization was spotty, but when I did it it was full strength, 1 tsp per gal.

    Bonjour

    for mine always in terra .

    I use NPK :25-5-5 diluted, to compensate the nitrogenous substance provided by ants.

    watering all the 15 days with alternating rain water and rain water + fertilizer

    SUBROSA ; do you know the myrmecodia tracability ? because in tuberosa you have a lot of species ,subservient, often to a particular area.

    Thanks for your cultivation notes; compensating for the missing N makes sense. The parent plant was likely from seed collected in Malaysia in 1985. The original plant was grown at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, then by the University of CT, then to me from the Director of Botany there, who is a member of the NECPS.

    I believe this is Myrmecodia tuberosa 'armata' Jack Here is the link: Myrmecodia tuberosa 'armata' {Rubiaceae}

    I will ask my friend the next time I see him, but the answer is likely to be unknown.
