Hi there

I've been to the city of Formosa, about 50km from my place, and I found some interesting Cps there.

A mountain river and its waterfalls.

In the slopes around the river there is always water flowing on the ground.

Most of the cps there were growing as reophytes, in a thin layer of slow moving water over the soil and the rocks.

D. communis (mimicking a D. roraimae) The tiny purple leaflets around it is U. nana.

Genlisea filiformis

The plant

Genlisea pygmaea. Not pygmy at all, the flowers were huge for a Genlisea. Might be one of the newly discovered tuberous form species.

Discocactus catinguicola. I'm always amazed how we can find cactaceae growing nearby hydrophilic CP species!

Thats all

Cheers

:blink:

Why the hell don´t I live close to such beautiful places?

:shout:

The Koellensteinia is an outstanding orchid! Can you send me one? (just kidding! ;-) )

The Epidendrum is nice as well!

Best regards

Hi Adilson,

really nice waterfall and of course the CP´s are also looking very good.

What a pity that it´s relatively difficult to achieve such a great colouration in culture.

Many thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

Dani
