A simulation study on the importance of size-related changes in leaf morphology and physiology for carbon gain in an epiphytic bromeliad. (1/41)

This study addresses the question of how size-related changes in leaf morphology and physiology influence light absorption and carbon gain of the epiphytic bromeliad Vriesea sanguinolenta. A geometrically based computer model, Y-plant, was used for the three-dimensional reconstruction of entire plants and for calculation of whole plant light interception and carbon gain. Plants of different sizes were reconstructed, and morphological and physiological attributes of young and old leaves, and small and large plants were combined to examine the individual effects of each factor on light absorption and carbon gain of the plant. The influence of phyllotaxis on light absorption was also explored. Departure of measured divergence angles between successive leaves from the ideal 137.5 degrees slightly decreased light absorption. The only morphological parameter that consistently changed with plant size was leaf shape: larger plants produced more slender foliage, which substantially reduced self-shading. Nevertheless, self-shading increased with plant size. While the maximum rate of net CO(2) uptake of leaves increased linearly with plant size by a factor of two from the smallest to the largest individual, the potential plant carbon gain (based on total foliage area) showed a curvilinear relationship, but with similar numerical variation. We conclude that leaf physiology has a greater impact on plant carbon gain than leaf and plant morphology in this epiphytic bromeliad.  (+info)

Multiple origins of crassulacean acid metabolism and the epiphytic habit in the Neotropical family Bromeliaceae. (2/41)

The large Neotropical family Bromeliaceae presents an outstanding example of adaptive radiation in plants, containing a wide range of terrestrial and epiphytic life-forms occupying many distinct habitats. Diversification in bromeliads has been linked to several key innovations, including water- and nutrient-impounding phytotelmata, absorptive epidermal trichomes, and the water-conserving mode of photosynthesis known as crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM). To clarify the origins of CAM and the epiphytic habit, we conducted a phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences for 51 bromeliad taxa by using the plastid loci matK and the rps16 intron, combined with a survey of photosynthetic pathway determined by carbon-isotope ratios for 1,873 species representing 65% of the family. Optimization of character-states onto the strict consensus tree indicated that the last common ancestor of Bromeliaceae was a terrestrial C(3) mesophyte, probably adapted to moist, exposed, nutrient-poor habitats. Both CAM photosynthesis and the epiphytic habit evolved a minimum of three times in the family, most likely in response to geological and climatic changes in the late Tertiary. The great majority of epiphytic forms are now found in two lineages: in subfamily Tillandsioideae, in which C(3) photosynthesis was the ancestral state and CAM developed later in the most extreme epiphytes, and in subfamily Bromelioideae, in which CAM photosynthesis predated the appearance of epiphytism. Subsequent radiation of the bromelioid line into less xeric habitats has led to reversion to C(3) photosynthesis in some taxa, showing that both gain and loss of CAM have occurred in the complex evolutionary history of this family.  (+info)

Anti-inflammatory activity in the aqueous crude extract of the leaves of Nidularium procerum: A bromeliaceae from the Brazilian coastal rain forest. (3/41)

Nidularium procerum LINDMAN, a common bromeliaceae from the Brazilian flora, remains poorly studied regarding its chemical and pharmacological properties. We have recently published that N. procerum has potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities. In the present work, we have investigated potential mechanisms involved in the anti-inflammatory effects of N. procerum aqueous extract on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-, platelet activating factor (PAF)- or formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP)-induced pleurisy models of inflammation. We found that the aqueous extract of N. procerum leaves (leaf aqueous extract; LAE) inhibits the neutrophil migration, production of inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 and -6 (IL-1 and IL-6) and the generation of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in LPS-induced pleural inflammation in mice. Such inhibitory effect of N. procerum on PGE2 generation was tightly correlated to the inhibition of formation of new cytoplasmic lipid bodies within recruited leukocytes. N. procerum also blocked the in vivo neutrophil influx induced by injection of PAF or fMLP into the mouse pleural cavity and directly inhibited PAF-induced neutrophil chemotaxis in vitro. The data obtained in this study indicate that N. procerum LAE exerts its anti-inflammatory effects by interfering with the capacity of the host to respond to injury at different levels. Among the different functions affected by N. procerum LAE, lipid body formation, PGE2 and cytokine production and neutrophil chemotaxis are readily evidenced in relevant surrogate models. The N. procerum bioactive profile makes it an attractive candidate for future development as a drug or phytomedicine.  (+info)

Candida bromeliacearum sp. nov. and Candida ubatubensis sp. nov., two yeast species isolated from the water tanks of Canistropsis seidelii (Bromeliaceae). (4/41)

Strains belonging to two novel yeast species, Candida bromeliacearum and Candida ubatubensis, were isolated from the bromeliad tank of Canistropsis seidelii (Bromeliaceae) in a sandy coastal plain (restinga) ecosystem site in an Atlantic rainforest of south-eastern Brazil. These species were genetically distinct from all other currently accepted ascomycetous yeasts, based on sequence divergence in the D1/D2 domains of the large-subunit rDNA and in the small-subunit rDNA. The species occupy basal positions in the Metschnikowiaceae clade. The type strains are Candida bromeliacearum UNESP 00-103(T) (=CBS 10002(T)=NRRL Y-27811(T)) and Candida ubatubensis UNESP 01-247R(T) (=CBS 10003(T)=NRRL Y-27812(T)).  (+info)

Changes in carbohydrate and nutrient contents throughout a reproductive cycle indicate that phosphorus is a limiting nutrient in the epiphytic bromeliad, Werauhia sanguinolenta. (5/41)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: This study examined the physiological basis of the cost of reproduction in the epiphytic bromeliad Werauhia sanguinolenta, growing in situ in a tropical lowland forest in Panama. METHODS: Entire mature plants were sampled repeatedly over the course of 2 years, which represents the common interval between reproductive events. Due to the uncertainty concerning the appropriate currency of resource allocation to reproduction, the temporal changes of the contents of total non-structural carbohydrates (TNC) and of all major nutrient elements in different plant parts were studied (stems, green leaves, non-green leaf bases, roots and reproductive structures when present). KEY RESULTS: Although TNC varied with time in all compartments, this variation was more related to seasonal fluctuations than to reproductive status. The contents of the nutrient elements, N, P, K, Mg and S, on the other hand, showed significant differences between reproductive and non-reproductive individuals, while Ca did not change with reproductive status. Differences in nutrient contents were most pronounced in stems. Seeds were particularly enriched in P, much less so in N and the other nutrient elements. Model calculations of nutrient fluxes indicate that a plant needs about 2 years to accumulate the amount of P invested in a fruit crop, while the estimated uptake rates for N were much faster. CONCLUSIONS: Since most mature individuals of this species fruit every other year, it is hypothesized that P is the prime limiting factor for reproduction. These findings therefore add to an increasing body of evidence that P rather than N is limiting growth and reproduction in vascular epiphytes.  (+info)

Neither host-specific nor random: vascular epiphytes on three tree species in a Panamanian lowland forest. (6/41)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A possible role of host tree identity in the structuring of vascular epiphyte communities has attracted scientific attention for decades. Specifically, it has been suggested that each host tree species has a specific subset of the local species pool according to its own set of properties, e.g. physicochemical characteristics of the bark, tree architecture, or leaf phenology patterns. METHODS: A novel, quantitative approach to this question is presented, taking advantage of a complete census of the vascular epiphyte community in 0.4 ha of undisturbed lowland forest in Panama. For three locally common host-tree species (Socratea exorrhiza, Marila laxiflora, Perebea xanthochyma) null models were created of the expected epiphyte assemblages assuming that epiphyte colonization reflected random distribution of epiphytes in the forest. KEY RESULTS: In all three tree species, abundances of the majority of epiphyte species (69-81 %) were indistinguishable from random, while the remaining species were about equally over- or under-represented compared with their occurrence in the entire forest plot. Permutations based on the number of colonized trees (reflecting observed spatial patchiness) yielded similar results. Finally, a third analysis (canonical correspondence analysis) also confirmed host-specific differences in epiphyte assemblages. In spite of pronounced preferences of some epiphytes for particular host trees, no epiphyte species was restricted to a single host. CONCLUSIONS: The epiphytes on a given tree species are not simply a random sample of the local species pool, but there are no indications of host specificity either.  (+info)

Predators accelerate nutrient cycling in a bromeliad ecosystem. (7/41)

Conventional ecological theory predicts that predators affect nutrient cycling by decreasing the abundance or activity of prey. By using a predator-detritivore-detritus food chain in bromeliads, we show that predators can increase nutrient cycling by a previously undescribed, but broadly applicable, mechanism: reducing nutrient export by prey emigration. Contrary to expectations, predation on detritivores increases detrital nitrogen uptake by bromeliads. Predation reduces detritivore emergence and hence export of nitrogen from the system. Detritivores therefore benefit their host plant, but only when predators are present. More generally, our results show that predator loss or extinction can dramatically and unexpectedly affect ecosystem functioning.  (+info)

Spatial distribution by Canistropsis microps (E. Morren ex Mez) Leme (Bromeliaceae: Bromelioideae) in the Atlantic rain forest in Ilha Grande, Southeastern Brazil. (8/41)

Canistropsis microps (Bromeliaceae: Bromelioideae) is an endemic species of Atlantic rain forest areas in Rio de Janeiro State, which are very abundant in not very disturbed forests in Ilha Grande, on the southern coast of the State. In this study, we analyzed the vertical and horizontal distribution patterns of the species in an area of rain forest with little evidence of disturbance at Vila Dois Rios, Ilha Grande, relating the patterns to sunlight in the microhabitat. We also identified the types of substrate used by the species and the rate of asexual reproduction. Canistropsis microps had high densities (estimated at 84,425 rosettes/ha), and has an aggregated distribution (Id = 2.86). About 80% of the rosettes were generated by clonal growth, whereas less than 20% were produced from seedlings. Most of the rosettes were found on straight tree trunks (DBH > 50 cm). There was a significant inverse correlation between the incidence of sunlight in the habitat and the abundance of individuals. Rosettes were found up to a maximum height of 9.5 m, but most occured between 1.5 and 5.5 m, where light varied from 25 to 50 micromol x s(-1) x m(-2). We conclude that vertical and horizontal distribution patterns in C. microps may be partially explained by the occurrence of appropriate substrate, an intensity of sunlight favorable to the development of the species and to a high rate of vegetative reproduction.  (+info)

Microsatellite markers were isolated in Dyckia distachya, an endangered bromeliad from southern Brazil, which will be useful to assess the population genetic structure and reproductive success in introduced and natural populations of this species. Twenty microsatellite loci were developed from an enriched genomic library, and nine of these were amplified. The loci were characterized in 43 individuals from introduced and wild D. distachya populations. All nine loci were polymorphic, with four to ten alleles per locus. In an introduced population the observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.136-0.667 and 0.543-0.877, respectively, while in a wild population it ranged from 0.000 to 0.895 and from 0.050 to 0.811, respectively. The development of these microsatellite markers will contribute to investigations of the reproductive potential and viability of introduced populations of D. distachya as well as the single known wild population.

Aechmea fasciata is an epiphytic Bromeliad from Brazil. Aechmeas are among the most beautiful of all Bromeliads for indoor decoration. Large, colorful blooms rise high above the vase-shaped rosette of leaves. Blooming time: Most Bromeliads will flower naturally when they reach maturity; they can also be made to flower by supplying the substances which begin bud formation: for example, enclose the entire plant ( with its cup empty of water to prevent excessive humidity buildup) in a plastic bag together with a ripe apple. The apple gives off ethylene gas which stimulates flowering in Bromeliads. Leave plant and apple in the plastic bag for 7-10 days; f lower will appear in 1-2 months. Culture: Add peatmoss to an equal volume of general house plant mix for a humusy and well drained combination. Soil may dry out between waterings. Keep water in central cup formed by leafy rosette. Fertilize every 1-2 months, applied to the soil. Or fill the cup with half-strength dilution of fertilizer every month. ...

At the time of this early stage of Satyrinae evolution (ca 60-50 Myr ago), dicotyledonous plants were dominant in the vast forests that covered the planet (Willis & McElwain 2002) and the only readily available monocots were forest-dwelling early lineages such as Arecales, Liliales, Zingiberales and basal Poales (Bromeliaceae). Early diverging Satyrinae lineages (Morphini, Brassolini and Amathusiini) expanded their host ranges to include young lineages of Poales and other monocotyledonous plants from forested habitats (i.e. Bromeliaceae and Zingiberales families, respectively). Extant Satyrinae in the early diverging lineages continue to be mainly forest dwellers.. At the same time, graminoid Poales (Poaceae) were poor in species and restricted to marshy and nutrient-poor habitats (Linder & Rudall 2005), making them ineffectual host plants for driving diversification (Janz et al. 2006). During the Tertiary, dramatic global climate changes, such as lower levels of CO2, decreased temperature and ...
... are members of a plant family called Bromeliaceae. The family contains over 3000 described species in approximately 56 genera plus thousands of hybrids. The most well known bromeliad is the pineapple. Plants are widely represented in their natural climates across the Americas. They can be found at altitudes from sea level to 4200 meters, from rainforests to deserts. Approximately half the species are epiphytes, some are lithophytes, and some are terrestrial. Accordingly, these plants can be found in the Andean highlands, from northern Chile to Colombia, in the Sechura Desert of coastal Peru, in the cloud forests of Central and South America, in southern United States from southern Virginia to Florida to Texas, and in far southern Arizona.. In general, they are easy to grow, require little care and reward the grower with brilliant blooms and spectacular ornamental foliage. They come in a wide range of sizes from tiny miniatures to giants. They can be grown indoors in cooler climates ...
This study presents a list of species of the two most important families with epiphytic elements, Bromeliaceae and Orchidaceae, from the Reserva de la Biosfera Barranca de Metztitlán (RBBM), the largest Reserve in Hidalgo, Mexico. Thirty-four species are included, 26 corresponding to species in three genera of bromeliads, and eight species in six genera of orchids. The new records represent 26.5% of the total listed in the area; nine of them are new records for the Reserve (RBBM) and one is new for Hidalgo State. This study reveals that endemism for both families is very important in the Reserve (55.88%), since it includes 13 Mexican bromeliads, of which two are endemic to Hidalgo and one to the Reserve, and three orchids, two endemic to Mexico and one to the Reserve. We found species with different types of relative abundance: rare (16) and occasional (7). Additionally, we include information about the category (IUCN, CITES, NOM-059-SEMARNAT) as well as uses reported in the literature for the species
Family Tingidae (lace bugs). Adults and nymphs of Megalocysta gibbifera (Picado) (Hemiptera: Tingidae) were noted to feed on Aechmea bromeliad leaves at Orosí in Costa Rica, and the nymphs were sometimes parasitized by larvae of small wasps possibly of Braconidae (Picado 1913). Their discoverer was perplexed that they should often be found stuck firmly in the gelatinous gum exuded by their host plants. This writer wonders whether the conditions for adhesion of the tingids were created by the method of their capture (dismembering bromeliads using considerable force and perhaps accidentally pressing the insects into the gum); his observations are that such gum is secreted only when bromeliads and members of some related families undergo gross physical damage (for example by breaking a bromeliad flower spike, or tearing the leaves from a stem); thus, under normal circumstances no gum would be exuded, so the tingids would not encounter it. ...

Gomez told the students in a prison interview that he repeatedly told Guevara that he fired straight into the sky. "Im telling him, No, no, no. He hits me and hits me," Gomez said. He said Guevara punched him in his side several times and once in his face, leaving his nose bloody. Gomez said another officer came in and hit him as well, and that the beating continued for about 20 minutes. Eventually, Gomez said he conceded to the officers that it was possible he fired upward but slightly toward the crowd. Gomez said the beating stopped when police allowed his older brother, Matos, and mother, Celia, to see him. Before they entered, Gomez said, Guevara cleaned the blood off his face with paper towels ...

It is a glycoproteic proteolytic enzyme present in the fruit, but at higher concentrations in the stem of Pineapple from which is extracted (Ananas Sativus - Family Bromeliaceae). Bromelain performs an anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, digestive action, it is able to enhance the action of antibiotics and drugs. In the inflamed tissue it reduces the vasodilation, capillary permeability, leukocyte migration and the local pain, by inhibiting the thromboxane synthetase enzyme which converts prostaglandin H2 into pro-inflammatory prostaglandins and thromboxanes thus increasing the production of prostaglandins with anti-inflammatory activity to the detriment of those with pro-inflammatory activity. Hence the safe use of bromelain compared to NSAIDs that inhibit cyclooxygenase, blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins and procuring a gastrointestinal damage. It is therefore particularly effective in the treatment of tissue inflammation associated with trauma, in localized inflammations especially in the ...
Control - Obviously the best route to take is prevention. Keep an eye on your watering habits; give your bromeliad a chance to dry out a little between watering, and water only the soil surface. Avoid overhead irrigation and splashing water on the leaves, this helps with spreading the disease. Water your bromeliad plant early in the day to promote rapid drying of the foliage. Its very important that you separate infected plants from apparently healthy plants when disease is first noticed. Carefully remove and destroy seriously infected plants and plant parts. Handle these plants with disposable plastic gloves to avoid contaminating other plants. Be sure to sterilize any contaminated pruning knives, tools etc ...

Guzmania is an epiphytic bromeliad; it needs high humidity and bright but indirect light. There should be water in the cup at all times (preferably rain water) and the soil can be kept slightly damp (as a source of ambient humidity). Once it blooms, the central rosette will naturally die. There should be baby pups or offsets at the base that will grow up and take its place, or you can carefully separate them off and plant them into their own pots. In the meantime you can trim off the dead portions ...
ARLINGTON -- Outfielder Carlos Gomez was on crutches and wearing a boot on his right foot in the Rangers clubhouse after a 3-1 loss to the Yankees on Saturday afternoon. Gomez had to leave the game in the second inning after he rolled his right ankle coming out of the batters box. Gomez underwent an MRI after the game, and the results showed a mild high ankle sprain. The Rangers dont know how long he will be out. There is no timetable, manager Jeff Banister said. Gomez turned the ankle after hitting a ground ball to second baseman Starlin Castro. He came out of the box limping badly, and then he went down to the ground. He had to be helped off the field by Banister and trainer Kevin Harmon.

Two changes in the lineup for todays 1 p.m. matinee against Colorado:. Thomas Greiss in, Antti Niemi out in goal.. Scott Gomez in, a player to be named later out on the fourth line.. "Were going to try and inject some fresh bodies and let them play," said Coach Todd McLellan. No, you dont want to change things too much on a team that has started 3-0, but scoring from the second and third lines has been non-existent so far and the Sharks didnt sign Gomez to keep him on the bench.. "Weve given him a heads-up that he will be playing," McLellan said, preferring to not identify the player Gomez will be replacing because he wants to keep everybody sharp as long as possible.. "Thats not an unusual thing in the NHL," he added. "You want to keep guys on their toes, especially this year with 48 games. If a guy goes two or three games and he doesnt dress, thats a big chunk of the season. They have to stay on their toes.". McLellan did say he would keep the third line intact based on its play in ...

Elements are essential for plant growth. Chemical elements are obtained from the air and water, unlike nutrient elements found in the soil. Nutrient element Potassium (K) is an essential major nutrient for crop production. Classified as a macronutrient, Potassium is absorbed in large amounts by most plants through root uptake. Of all the essential elements, potassium is the third most likely, after nitrogen and phosphorous, to limit plant productivity. In soil, potassium is present as K+, enabling potassium to be held tightly within the soil matrix, limiting offsite movement. Potassium is found naturally in many soils. However, highly weathered soils usually contain lower levels.. Potassium absorbed by plants is used to control or regulate cellular enzymes responsible for energy metabolism, starch synthesis, nitrate reduction, photosynthesis and sugar degradation. Potassium plays a major role in a plants ability to withstand drought conditions, provide better resistance to certain fungal ...
Urine toxic and essential elements analysis is an invaluable tool for the assessment of retention of toxic metals in the body and the status of essential nutrient elements. Toxic metals do not have any useful physiological function, adversely affect almost every organ system, and disrupt the homeostasis of nutrient elements.. Heavy metals toxicity caused by increasing levels of pollution and use of chemicals in industry is a growing threat to our health and development of our children. High levels of toxic metals deposited in body tissues and subsequently in the brain, may cause significant developmental and neurological damage.. ...

Selena Gomez was in a "life-or-death" situation before undergoing a kidney transplant earlier this year (17).. The 25-year-old singer suffers from lupus, and was told by doctors she would need to find a kidney donor after complications of the disease left her incredibly ill.

So there is a chance, with the club facing Yankees right-hander A.J. Burnett in Game 2, that Gardenhire could slot Kubel as the DH, the spot he occupied for most of the season. That would allow Gardenhire to start Carlos Gomez in center field while shifting Denard Span to right field, which is the outfield setup that the Twins have been using late in games to provide more defensive coverage. Kubel went 0-for-4 in Wednesdays 7-2 Game 1 loss at Yankee Stadium, while Span notched two hits in five at-bats. Gomez didnt play in Game 1. "We have been looking at a lot of things, and that is something I have thought about," Gardenhire said of the lineup changes. "Gomez brings another element. Even though his at-bats arent always quality, he runs all over the place. So thats something that may be a possibility for [Friday], because weve been struggling at DH." Gomez has just 35 at-bats since the start of September, and hes hitting .143 over that span. But the outfielder went 1-for-2 and scored the ...

Bromeliaceae (the bromeliads) is a family of monocot flowering plants of around 3,170 species native mainly to the tropical Americas, with a few species found in the American subtropics and one in tropical west Africa, Pitcairnia feliciana. It is the one of the basal families within the Poales and is unique because it is the only family within the order that has septal nectaries and inferior ovaries. These inferior ovaries characterize the Bromelioideae, a subfamily of the Bromeliaceae. The family includes both epiphytes, such as Spanish moss (Tillandsia usneoides), and terrestrial species, such as the pineapple (Ananas comosus). Many bromeliads are able to store water in a structure formed by their tightly-overlapping leaf bases. However, the family is diverse enough to include the tank bromeliads, grey-leaved epiphytic Tillandsia species that gather water only from leaf structures called trichomes, and a large number of desert-dwelling succulents. The largest bromeliad is Puya raimondii, which ...
INTRODUCTION Phytotelmata are aquatic micro-environments formed by accumulation of water in any part of the body of plants such as leaves, flowers, stems or trunks (Frank & Lounibos, 1983). The communities of organisms that live in them are composed mainly of insects, immature stages of Diptera being dominant (Fish, 1983). The fact that phytotelmata are easy to handle small pools of water which allow to design experiments in natural conditions could account for the various studies carried out on them. Furthermore, some phytotelmata are important habitats that produce mosquito vectors of human diseases (Frank et al., 1988; OMeara et al., 1995). The phytotelmata of Argentina have not been explored in depth, and only a few studies related to the invertebrate community living therein have been published. The first one was conducted in the subtropical region of Corrientes province, regarding the Bromeliaceae Aechmea distichantha Lemaire (Torales et al., 1972); it described the physical and chemical ...

Interactions among microbial symbionts have multiple roles in the maintenance of insect-microbe symbiosis. However, signals mediating microbial interactions have been scarcely studied. In the classical model system of bark beetles and fungal associates, fungi increase the fitness of insects. However, not all interactions are mutualistic, some of these fungal symbionts compete for sugars with beetle larvae. How this antagonistic effect is alleviated is unknown, and recent research suggests potential roles of bacterial symbionts. Red turpentine beetle (RTB), Dendroctonus valens LeConte, is an invasive pest in China, and it leads to wide spread, catastrophic mortality to Chinese pines. In the symbiotic system formed by RTB, fungi and bacteria, volatiles from predominant bacteria regulate the consumption sequence of carbon sources D-pinitol and D-glucose in the fungal symbiont Leptographium procerum, and appear to alleviate the antagonistic effect from the fungus against RTB larvae. However, active ...
Cypress swamps are communities that are dominated by bald cypress trees. These ecosystems assume differences in response to abiotic and biotic factors. The big cypress swamp, much of which is in Big Cypress National Preserve, is mostly composed of these types of communities.. Other plants growing in the understory of big cypress swamp, are swamp fern, spikerush and marsh fleabane. Among the woody plants found in the understory are buttonbush, cocoplum, willow and wax myrtle.. Growing on the trunks and branches of the cypress trees are epiphytes or airplants. Epiphytic plants attach themselves to other living plants, in this case the cypress trees. Instead of having its roots in the soil they are wrapped around the cypress tree to keep it securely in place. Well know epiphytes in the Big Cypress National Preserve are bromeliads and orchids. Epiphytes use photosynthesis to create its own food and obtain moisture from humidity, like fog and rain.. Cypress trees grow in water and are found growing ...
Even though not everyone had brought their sale plants, I did end up walking home with quite a haul--my birthday presents to myself. In an updated order by request, I bought (from top left going clockwise in a swirly upside-down "e" shape with a dent in its head) a Dyckia Red Devil, Euphorbia greenwayi, Neoalsomitra sarcophylla, Sansevieria ballyi, Ornithogalum caudatum (this plant has a lot of synonymous genus and species names--The Plant List says Albuca bracteata is its true name, but Ill go with O. caudatum because thats what Ive been calling it on here for all of these years), Stapelia NOID (I think this might actually be a Huernia, but Ill have to wait for it to flower before I know for sure), Tephrocactus articulatus (although The Plant List says this is actually Opuntia articulata and Tephrocactus isnt a genus anymore, I think Tephrocactus is used often enough for this particular plant group that people might get confused if I called this an Opuntia), Sedum hintonii, Hechtia ...
