    Arisaema candidissimum

    A couple of this year's flowering plants of Arisaema candidissimum. This one has the advantage of having quite a pleasant fragrance, the other Arisaema don't appear to have any, at least none that I have noticed. That's a big bonus over many other Aroids Excuse the green background, it was...

    Aroids, Hoya, and other novelties

    Amongst all the CP's there are a handful of plants that are unusual enough to catch my eye. They include: No clue what species this is, but the flowers are powerful enough to fill the living room with floral scent in the mornings.

    Looking for trades to expand a teaching CP collection

    Hi everyone! I would love to begin doing some plant trades in order to benefit my workplace and obtain a more complete and interesting collection of CPs. Because my teaching greenhouses aren't specifically specialized in CPs, there are significant holes in our collection and many genera are...

    Blooming ginger

    Hey folks, I bought a couple small dried up very lightweight bulbs of this somewhat rare ginger called Kampferia elegans. It's a short low growing Ginger that looks very similar to a maranta/calathea or "prayer plant". I really had given these bulbs up for dead a few weeks ago when all of a...

    Winter's coming...i'm scared

    Last spring I ordered my first Nepenthes...Miranda.  He was a little banged up when he got here ("here" being New Orleans, LA) and his pot was broken but other than that he was alive and green.  I didn't want to stress him out any further by repotting right then so I just put his pot inside of...

    Aroid raises a stink!

    Well it happened...overnight as a matter of fact and I loved it! My Sauromatum venosum flowered for me!
