Thanks! That's ecoweb - I'm coaxing moss and plants to conceal as much of it as I can.

Here's a neat epiphytic Viola sp. from the Tungurahua province in Ecuador, collected between Magdalena and Balzapamba....so far it's been growing well in the tanks and has a nice creeping habit.

The Pipers are kinda a misunderstood genus with a lot of really beautiful and unique species from the neotropics. Many have interesting foliage such as Piper marsupiiferum and it's relatives like P. bullosum and P. ulceratum; those all have a heavily corrogated/crinkled leaf similar to Anthurium clidemioides. A few are starting to filter in the hobby....most are small shrubs that can be kept small with pruning.

The P. unguiculatum appears to be a compact, often epiphytic shrub that forms small colonies. It sends out thick aerial anchor roots from its stems in high humidity or in contact with substrate.

I like pipers a lot. I remember that in the mountains down in Costa Rica they are very characteristic understory plants and there were lots of different species. They have a couple that look like good viv subjects at glasshouseworks.com.

Here are a couple I picked up recently.
Pleurothallis dodsonii. I don't care if it ever flowers. Those leaves are so cool. Sorry if this may have been posted before.


Sorry this isn't the greatest picture. Smithiantha cinnabarina. The blooms are red "Sinningia" type flowers.

Loving that Smithiantha!

Here's a different form of the popular Anthurium clidemioides with larger, less-corrugated leaves that seem to develop a velvety sheen.....collected in the Golfito area of Costa Rica.



And compared with the normal growth form on the left....

Begonia herbacea starting to look good.....this one's a smaller epiphyte from Brazil, seems to do best in moist and shady conditions where it's planted in live moss and tree fern.

Love the white spots on that last one, Josh. I've got a viv with begonias scapigera, bipinnatifida, peridot, incisa, dregei and more. With a size not larger than 15" square, I sure have to prune often!

Just pulled the rotting remains of mine out the other day. I think the temperatures down low were just too cold for it. Combined with moist and shady, it just melted.

Mine melted too - but I think I didn't give it enough air movement. It was doing fine until I plugged up all the vents.

Sigh.

A little while ago, I posted pics in this thread of an unidentified vine that I was growing. This is a second vine that I received at the same time. Again, I don't have an i'd or know much about it. It seems to be related to the first vine, but it is smaller in leaf size, darker green, hairy, and slower growing. Here are three pics of the vine at different sizes. The leaves get darker and hairier as they get larger. The largest leaf I have gotten so far is about 1/2".
Toksyn also posted a few nice pics of these 2 vines in this thread, a few pages back

the more mature leaves develop brown veins that remind me of the microgramma species...
It looks like Tradescantia to me. Possibly Tradescantia fluminensis

Thank you for the suggestion but I have seen Tradescantia fluminensis in person, it is darker and the leaves have a different texture to them. I'll post pics later of a pot of this stuff, turns out it grows better creeping and vining on the floor than up a mount. I'm aiming more towards a callisia... but who knows...

Thanks for the comments on the vine guys.

This should probably go in the Bryophyte thread, but I'll just put it here.
Most people wouldn't give this moss a second look if they saw it in person, as it almost looks like hair algae growing over the substrate. But, I was looking at it today and thought I would share.
Not sure how many people look, but it can be interesting to look for various mosses that sprout up on orchid mounts or even on the roots.
While most of the time the mosses are pretty generic looking, every once in awhile you find an interesting one. That is how I found this one. And since more people are getting into orchids on this board, it might be worth mentioning. Of course even if you find a bit, it takes some time to grow it out, but I guess that's the challenge.

The first two photos show a close up of the moss and the third shows a piece next to a penny for scale. Again not a pretty moss, but kind of interesting.

Speaking of mosses.

This is one of my absolute favourite mosses in the collection. Microdendron sinense from Laos. I call it "The Bonsai Moss". Grown solitary on EpiWeb.

I've gotten a couple of mosses like that before from asiatic green a while ago and unfortunately they didn't last after 4 months. My guess is still because they prefer highland conditions? Maybe I'll try again once I get the highland viv going.
