Hello,

 

this is the last part of my Amuri series, where I will show some more plants and impressions of that gorge H. uncinata grew (see part IV). A very special atmosphere, with some very special plants rarely to be seen.

On the wet walls grew U. heterochroma, a lithophytic species that sticks to the rock with its stolons:

The flower:

Here the habitat - down there Andreas exploring the wall:

Further up the canyon -

The bromeliads seen in the above pics are Brocchinia tatei - here a closer view:

and inside the Brocchinia:

Here the whole plant in flower: U. humboldtii:

On the trees many beautiful epiphytes - like U. jamesoniana among some orchids...

...and this little rarity - U. schultesii:

Psychotria spec.:

And a highland orchid, that comes in many different colours - Epidendrum secundum:

Last picture: a pretty caterpillar feeding on a Heliamphora flower. Would love to see the butterfly.

Hope you like it!

Geesh, amazing pictures.

So lovely stuff in this thread. I'm really interested in these two Utricularia, heterochroma and schultesii ? Are they spread in cultivation ?

Anyway, thanks for sharing these pictures !

Thanks :-)

 

Mantas, I think you're right with Lepanthes. No closer views, sorry.

Dani, of course ;-) corrected it now.

Vince, as far as I know, both are not in cultivation. 

 

Regards

Martin,

 

Just amazing! Thank you for sharing all these pictures with us...

It is a really interesting habitat and not only for carnivorous plants.

 

Cheers,

Very nice country, and great shots of the plants. Looks like sandstone formations. There's a lot of that here and it's great to walk through as it supports lots of microclimates.
