Well this is not an impressive picture but the plant is. It's Amydrium zippellianum. It's a smallish growing Aroid that does well even as a house plant. Here's mine.

This is a great thread, thanks for starting it Chuck.

Philodendron hastatum (immature growth):


Begonia fagifollia:


Monstera siltepecana (or at least that's what I think it is):


And lastly, probably one of my favorite plants. Anthurium crystalinum:

Yeah, I'm not too sure it is P. bicolor either, but that's the tag I had with it so went with it for now. Do you have any pics of P. velutina? Mine hasn't flowered yet, or if it did I missed it. I'll keep a closer eye on it.

I only have a picture from my own plant and it looks just like yours. I did find a black and white from Exotica using this name. It looks identical. I also looked at the type picture I found on Peperomia.net and it looks like a match. But since I have no idea the source of the plant but if I look at the 2 side by side they really don't look like the same plant. The flower may be very different but we'll have to wait for that.

Well, if selaginella is fair game, how about liverwort ... at least I think that's what this is. It just started sprouting out of some sheet moss I put down a couple months ago:

Anybody know for sure what these little leaflets are?

That Selaginella involcata is pretty interesting. Do you have any information on it? Google didn't pull up anything.

I love liverwort. The picture is too small for me to make much of it.

This one only gets 12" it will fit in almost any viv! my thumbs love them and perch on the sturdy leaves. I have a few left for trade.

The "Liverwort" is more likely the first stage of fern growth... I got excited when I had that stuff pop up in some of my grow trays and they are just "pest" ferns.

It does look that way. liverwart has a scaley look and a fern sporiphite looks like bits of clear plastic. I have cultured both and liverwart is opaque (you can't see through it) either way both can be nice in a viv given the right location.

Corey
I'll keep an eye on it to see what it becomes. It's very difficult to photograph, as the leaflets are more reflective than the surrounding moss, so they tend to overexpose. So far it looks just like the base of my liverwort, but if it comes up as ferns, I'll take 'em since they were free hitchhikers - the moss was an old bag that had begun to turn brown, so I couldn't sell it. I just threw it in an empty tank to see if it would come back.

Here are pics of my ferns when they started...






Some foliage pics I have handy....


Peperomia hernandifolia... yes it was posted in the peperomia thread, but I love this plant... can't wait to get it back! Good thing I got out cuttings before it went down


Chlorophytum 'Fireflash' - rather big for the average tank, but the bright highlighter orange stems compliment the green leaves very well... and considering I hate packing a lot of color into a tank I think it should say something that I like this plant so much!


Ok, ok, it had to be done... but at least it's not "typical" pothos! I prefer the solid forms of pothos over the traditional golden and marble queen varieties (tho the solid forms have more specific lighting needs).


Because this begonia is so awesome, I need to post it again... even having killed off my stock twice Next time I'm hoping to put it into a large established tank and let it do it's thing. Has anyone ever seen this species flower? And yes, I realize it's Lita, Ecuador, not Peru :roll: I never got around to updating the pic with correct info.


Maranta seem so underrated I guess because they are a "home depot" plant... I'm hoping to build up my collection of these again, and these plants just are so good at adding that splash of color without going overboard.


I love it for it's shape and texture... after seeing a tank with this basically as the main plant show casing a group of oyapok tincs, it really impressed me. I'm also currently in love with Ficus sp. 'Panama', but don't have a pic handy, and don't really know what it looks like when it mats.


Philodendron grazielae - it may not have the color/pattern of 'Burle Marx Fantasy' (probably my fav philo), the shape and growth of the species puts it right into my second fav philo spot.

This initial growth is actually the fern gametophyte (the prothallus, and the fronds are the sporophyte). Great shot Corey!

While we are on ferns, here are a few pics I must share.


Wall of Ferns at Como Park MN
