Philodendron gigas
#philodendrongigasprogress #lemonforscale
.
The latest update with this plant is that it's been successfully air layered and transferred into a temporary flood and drain hydroponics tray!
.
This was my first attempt at air layering with a bag full of leca, rather than sphagnum moss which ends up being tedious to remove from the roots when transplanting. The leca needed to be watered twice daily, which was a drawback, but the air layer encouraged a decent amount of roots over a couple of months.
.
I wouldn't prioritise this method, my next air layers are being done with coarse perlite instead. It's a material that is easy to remove, can remain attached to roots (in hydro OR potting mix) and allows for less frequent waterings.
.
The specimen plant is now much more stout and has a decent thickness stem at the base, where it's only roots are. This should allow for better moisture transportation from the root zone to the leaves until it gets mounted and allowed to climb.
.
The rest of the plant will be propagated in the spring and I already have a list of about 10 people wanting cuttings that I probably can't completely cater for 😅
.
It's already settled enough to put out a new leaf, so hopefully the conversion will improve its growth, even beyond what it was achieving up until now.

Philodendron 'Glorious'.
#philodendrongloriousprogress
.
I wish there was more readily available info on these cultivars.
.
The form of this one is very different than others that I've seen in people's collections, but it's also different to another one that I grow in similar conditions.
.
I've heard there are four types of 'Glorious', of differing rarity, but that's unconfirmed info.
.
If any can shed some more light on the cultivar, I'd love to hear it. Also, if anyone is growing a 'Glorious' that looks more like this one than what's readily available, I'd love to see it too. DM me.
.
This plant is about 18 months old from a postal delivered rooted cutting and is becoming a monster for an indoor space.
.

Philodendron warscewiczii
A plant gifted to me by (the temporarily absent on Instagram)- @wild.about.plants 😪 come back soon lovely x
.
This is only a sub-adult leaf form. If you don't know what this species develops into, check the species hashtag at the end of the post for some examples. Incredibly intricate leaf form!
.
I can't wait to get this one (and another I have from @mendels.project) to mature and display the amazing leaves this species is renown for.
.
It's the only known deciduous philodendron species. Originating from Mexico (I believe) and living sometimes lithophytically (on rocks) in an environment that experiences seasonal changes, it will drop the paper thin leaves during the drier party of the year to conserve moisture.
.
I'm just playing with some lenses and the ISO settings on my DSLR to bring some less composed pics into my feed. This leaf is just standing out from the mix, so has become the focus 😁

Begonia 'Logan Prize'
Been in hydroculture for a long time now, maybe 12 months, but originally was doing terribly. .
Rex begonias (and it's becoming apparent that some rhizomatous species) detest being in close proximity to a damp substrate for extended periods.
.
The solution for this, temporarily, was to water the plant as if it was in potting mix (but using nutrient solution) and not leaving the plant sitting in a nutrient puddle.
. This turned the plant around dramatically and resulted in the growth shown.
.
Downside is, it takes away one of the major benefits of hydroculture, in that it needs regular watering attention, so that it doesn't sit dry for too long.
.
I've just changed the setup to a wick method to see if I can have a happy combination of a sizeable reservoir of nutrients, sufficient water supply AND to prevent leaf drop or poor root health etc.
.
For this method, wicking material choice is key. Avoid organic materials as they will rot quickly, attract mould, potentially smell etc and be short lived. Braided Nylon seems to be the ideal man-made material, better than polypropylene.
.
I'm using a 5mm diamater, braided-nylon, starter-cord (for a lawn mower, etc) available from Bunnings. This will wick water easily to 30cms (1 foot) plus on height, with half of that height reached within a minute.
.
The goal is to have as short of a distance as possible to the reservoir though. Increasing or decreasing uptake rates can be adjusted by adding or removing wicks. Even just raising up existing wicks out of the solution will change uptake, without repotting.
.
Now, just have to wait and see, because I have a fair few plants that seem like they will do much better getting their roots up and out of the solution. .

Rhaphidophora decursiva
This is three vines that I had originally potted separately, all tossed in together because they were taking up too much space on their own.
.
Now the third biggest plant I have in hydroponics and the second largest in passive hydroponics. #lemonforscale
.
On inspection, the roots were ok on all plants. There was a bit of shedding, but that could have been from the original root stock. The second largest vine was 100% hydro rooted and looked the best.
.
The original potted plants had overgrown their pots really bad and blocked up all the drain holes with roots that snaked all throughout the passive trays. Most of those were cut away, reducing the root ball sizes considerably. In hydro, this barely matters as there's a constant water supply, plus more pore spacing in the pot leads to better ongoing root health anyway.
.
This reservoir container is perfect for this pot size, toughened pyrex glass, $5 at an op-shop, fits perfectly.
.
The pot is raised off the bottom by a saucer, so that when the nutrient level drops, it can go below the drainage holes and allow some dry time for the roots pretty easily.
.
How good is the young vine snaking around the central pole? 😁

Philodendron mamei
New gifted from @kateandfinn_vs_plants during her recent 'Help a brother out' Canberra tour. Thanks Kate, for the help AND the plants (and the lasagne)
.
Philodendron mamei is a terrestrial species, growing across the surface of the soil and only occasionally seen to climb trees. I'm going to try and get it growing upwards... we'll see.
.
Reported to quickly become large in the home environment. In a short time, I'll be overdoing my little space by taking this one on. It's such a desirable species to me though, I'm willing to make it work somehow 😁
.
Watch this space... (become quickly overgrown with the four terrestrial species I'm growing) 😅😅

Microsorum musifolium 'Crocodyllus'
Roots in hydroculture. .
I've recently been inspecting (and potting on) a number of plants that were converted and left untouched for over 6 months.
.
While some, like this Crocodyllus fern, have remained in excellent root health, some have suffered significant root health deterioration, due to the permanent submergence and constant wet feet.
.
At the moment I'm trying to determine the underlying factors that predispose one species to poor health and another to excellent health. There doesn't seem to be any specific common growth characteristic between those that suffer or thrive though.
.
Most of my plants are epiphytes (growing ON or IN trees) and are used to a high level of drainage, drying of roots and air exposure to roots. However, some that naturally grow like this are incredibly productive in hydroculture, while others flounder over time.
.
The phenomena can't even be divided by genus. For example Rhapidophora decursiva is probably the best hydroculture grower I have, while Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is one of the worst.
.
This is part of the reason i haven't released my growing technique to general circulation just yet. I'm trying to present a more detailed analysis and find a way to incorporate flexibility, adaptability and regular assessment to the process. Also too improve ways to diagnose issues before they progress too far.
.
Part of this is so that when someone converts a prize specimen that I've never tried before and it doesn't do well, I don't get angry messages about it.
.
Maybe like the potential loss of say... an Athurium crystallinum... ahem, @aplantment 😅 fingers crossed it stays good 🤞...

Organised chaos...
Just some progress pics of how a couple of the main areas are looking at the moment.
.
I only just realised my main humidistat had been going out of calibration and the ambient humidity, even 10 metres away from the main unit, was about 90%!!!
.
That's not good for keeping condensation on cold walls at bay. A little reprogramming should have it sorted.
.
Fingers crossed 🤞

This plant is about 18 months old from a postal delivered rooted cutting and is becoming a monster for an indoor space. . #doubledoorsforscale, because a lemon would just be unnoticeable 😅 . . . . . . . . #philodendron #philodendronglorious #araceae #aroid #aroidsofinstagram #aroidsocietyofaustralia #internationalaroidsociety #aroidfanatic #aroidlover #plantsinfocus #plantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #aussieplantclub #kateandfinn_vs_plants #grow_slow #instagreen #instaplant #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #indoorplant #tropicalplant #biophilia #houseplants #houseplantsofinstagram #greenyourfeed #greentherapy #urb4n_gr33n

Zamioculcas zamiifolia 'Jungle Warrior' .
New growth surging through, showing as the bright, 'Apple green' unformed leaves, contrasting with the deep tones of the old mature growth.
.
This one will stay in potting mix for no other reason than I made a decision not to convert it due to its size. Probably would have been fine, but I like growing in potting mix too, as I always have 😁 (it's only 2/3rds hydro at my place).
.
I think this one originated from @maethoraniplants, but was a present from @growinggrounds, so I'm stoked it loves the bright artificial light it sits directly under and is looking it's best for a post.

Philodendron warscewiczii
A plant gifted to me by (the temporarily absent on Instagram)- @wild.about.plants 😪 come back soon lovely x
.
This is only a sub-adult leaf form. If you don't know what this species develops into, check the species hashtag at the end of the post for some examples. Incredibly intricate leaf form!
.
I can't wait to get this one (and another I have from @mendels.project) to mature and display the amazing leaves this species is renown for.
.
It's the only known deciduous philodendron species. Originating from Mexico (I believe) and living sometimes lithophytically (on rocks) in an environment that experiences seasonal changes, it will drop the paper thin leaves during the drier party of the year to conserve moisture.
.
I'm just playing with some lenses and the ISO settings on my DSLR to bring some less composed pics into my feed. This leaf is just standing out from the mix, so has become the focus 😁

Philodendron gigas
#philodendrongigasprogress #lemonforscale
.
The latest update with this plant is that it's been successfully air layered and transferred into a temporary flood and drain hydroponics tray!
.
This was my first attempt at air layering with a bag full of leca, rather than sphagnum moss which ends up being tedious to remove from the roots when transplanting. The leca needed to be watered twice daily, which was a drawback, but the air layer encouraged a decent amount of roots over a couple of months.
.
I wouldn't prioritise this method, my next air layers are being done with coarse perlite instead. It's a material that is easy to remove, can remain attached to roots (in hydro OR potting mix) and allows for less frequent waterings.
.
The specimen plant is now much more stout and has a decent thickness stem at the base, where it's only roots are. This should allow for better moisture transportation from the root zone to the leaves until it gets mounted and allowed to climb.
.
The rest of the plant will be propagated in the spring and I already have a list of about 10 people wanting cuttings that I probably can't completely cater for 😅
.
It's already settled enough to put out a new leaf, so hopefully the conversion will improve its growth, even beyond what it was achieving up until now.

Thaumatophyllum spruceanum
#spruceanumprogress
.
Just a pic to follow up with the growth on this one.
.
Seems to be a pretty slow grower, but gradually putting on some size.
.
Still in potting mix, because a mature specimen of this species, in hydro, would be limiting in where I could grow it. I definetely restrict the use of hydroculture to smaller growers or plants that can spend a good part of the year here outside on the porch.

Philodendron verrucosum
For those that are interested, this is the tiny, leafless, stem section from the bin that took 4 months to root.
.
See #philodendronverrucosum2progress
.
Glad i persisted. It's now being grown on for a friend, still in flood and drain hydroponics, but will be transitioned to aroid mix for its new home in spring or so.
.
It's a good example of how the more leaves that a plant puts on, the faster it will grow, become established and eventually mature.
.
This increase in growth rate is almost exponential. In the last month, this particular plant has put on the same amount of growth as the five months preceding.
.
This is worth considering the next time you're propagating or buying single node cuttings. Even a two node cutting will be much more vigorous and successful and a three node even more so. Single nodes are pretty well just to maximise sales profits and have a MUCH higher failure rate.
.
The only time I'll do single node cuttings is to try and increase variegation on a weakly variegated monstera, as I want every single bud to shoot for the greatest chance at an improved growing tip. But these cuttings are slow to establish and multiple nodes are ALWAYS better.
.
Here endeth the lesson. .

Rhaphidophora decursiva
This is three vines that I had originally potted separately, all tossed in together because they were taking up too much space on their own.
.
Now the third biggest plant I have in hydroponics and the second largest in passive hydroponics. #lemonforscale
.
On inspection, the roots were ok on all plants. There was a bit of shedding, but that could have been from the original root stock. The second largest vine was 100% hydro rooted and looked the best.
.
The original potted plants had overgrown their pots really bad and blocked up all the drain holes with roots that snaked all throughout the passive trays. Most of those were cut away, reducing the root ball sizes considerably. In hydro, this barely matters as there's a constant water supply, plus more pore spacing in the pot leads to better ongoing root health anyway.
.
This reservoir container is perfect for this pot size, toughened pyrex glass, $5 at an op-shop, fits perfectly.
.
The pot is raised off the bottom by a saucer, so that when the nutrient level drops, it can go below the drainage holes and allow some dry time for the roots pretty easily.
.
How good is the young vine snaking around the central pole? 😁

Philodendron sodiroi
See #sodiroiprogress for development
.
Finally have been able to add a decent pole to this one, as it's fallen over a few times due to having inadequate support from a skinny, unfastened bamboo stake, half its height 😅
.
The second pic shows that it had filled it's pot in the ebb and flow hydroponic system and had started to become a bit O2 starved. I got to it soon enough though, and the third pic shows I've teased the roots out for better breathing room in the upsized pot.
.
Even with a pot upsize, I barely needed to add any new leca after teasing the roots out. This decompaction process is important to retain good root health over the long term, PARTICULARLY in a passive system.
.
This is because compaction combined with constant immersion doesn't allow CO2 to exit the root zone. The CO2 gets concentrated in the water and can convert to carbonic acid, which will burn roots. Especially roots that are already in poor health from being starved of oxygen.
.
Less of a risk in ebb and flow, but pot bound roots still have trouble breathing and can rot easier than usual.

So much to do...
The verrucosum has outgrown its location and is now in its own miniature ebb and flow system, along with some young philodendrons, namely ernestii, 'Majestic', a 2nd 'Glorious' and a 69686.
.
Of course that means lighting isn't set up correctly for the addition, so a temporary 30W flood has been retrofitted to a camera tripod to add some fill light for the new positioning.
.
I've needed to clean up some of the overgrowth, and to initiate some new plants into hydro. So, I've got a low rectangular bucket, filled with pH adjusted water and weak nutrients, an aquarium water heater and an air stone for agitation and oxygenation.
.
This all basically adds up to a, Deep Water Culture hydroponic system that's providing good results for healthy root growth.
.
In behind that is a heat mat helping some warmth loving young plants get a better root system over the winter lull. This area is lit with a 4000K temp LED flood instead of the usual 6500K. This is to see if the warmer red will provide better starting growth, simulating the light colours a young plant might be exposed to in a dense forest understorey.
.
As I regain use of my post op shoulder, there will be some major changes in the works...

Philodendron mamei
New gifted from @kateandfinn_vs_plants during her recent 'Help a brother out' Canberra tour. Thanks Kate, for the help AND the plants (and the lasagne)
.
Philodendron mamei is a terrestrial species, growing across the surface of the soil and only occasionally seen to climb trees. I'm going to try and get it growing upwards... we'll see.
.
Reported to quickly become large in the home environment. In a short time, I'll be overdoing my little space by taking this one on. It's such a desirable species to me though, I'm willing to make it work somehow 😁
.
Watch this space... (become quickly overgrown with the four terrestrial species I'm growing) 😅😅

Begonia 'Logan Prize'
Been in hydroculture for a long time now, maybe 12 months, but originally was doing terribly. .
Rex begonias (and it's becoming apparent that some rhizomatous species) detest being in close proximity to a damp substrate for extended periods.
.
The solution for this, temporarily, was to water the plant as if it was in potting mix (but using nutrient solution) and not leaving the plant sitting in a nutrient puddle.
. This turned the plant around dramatically and resulted in the growth shown.
.
Downside is, it takes away one of the major benefits of hydroculture, in that it needs regular watering attention, so that it doesn't sit dry for too long.
.
I've just changed the setup to a wick method to see if I can have a happy combination of a sizeable reservoir of nutrients, sufficient water supply AND to prevent leaf drop or poor root health etc.
.
For this method, wicking material choice is key. Avoid organic materials as they will rot quickly, attract mould, potentially smell etc and be short lived. Braided Nylon seems to be the ideal man-made material, better than polypropylene.
.
I'm using a 5mm diamater, braided-nylon, starter-cord (for a lawn mower, etc) available from Bunnings. This will wick water easily to 30cms (1 foot) plus on height, with half of that height reached within a minute.
.
The goal is to have as short of a distance as possible to the reservoir though. Increasing or decreasing uptake rates can be adjusted by adding or removing wicks. Even just raising up existing wicks out of the solution will change uptake, without repotting.
.
Now, just have to wait and see, because I have a fair few plants that seem like they will do much better getting their roots up and out of the solution. .

I've just changed the setup to a wick method to see if I can have a happy combination of a sizeable reservoir of nutrients, sufficient water supply AND to prevent leaf drop or poor root health etc. . For this method, wicking material choice is key. Avoid organic materials as they will rot quickly, attract mould, potentially smell etc and be short lived. Braided Nylon seems to be the ideal man-made material, better than polypropylene. . I'm using a 5mm diamater, braided-nylon, starter-cord (for a lawn mower, etc) available from Bunnings. This will wick water easily to 30cms (1 foot) plus on height, with half of that height reached within a minute. . The goal is to have as short of a distance as possible to the reservoir though. Increasing or decreasing uptake rates can be adjusted by adding or removing wicks. Even just raising up existing wicks out of the solution will change uptake, without repotting. . Now, just have to wait and see, because I have a fair few plants that seem like they will do much better getting their roots up and out of the solution. . . . . . . . . . #begonia #begonialoganprize #begoniaceae #begoniabrigade #begoniaofinstagram #plantsinfocus #plantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #aussieplantclub #kateandfinn_vs_plants #grow_slow #instagreen #instaplant #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #indoorplant #tropicalplant #biophilia #hydroculture #hydroponics #leca #houseplants #houseplantsofinstagram #greenyourfeed #greentherapy #urb4n_gr33n

Philodendron campii x acutifolium
Acquired through the aroid society. I don't know if I've even posted this one before.
.
It's really coming into its own now, those leaves are around 55cm (nearly 2 foot) long and the vine is now decreasing its internode spacing dramatically. Not sure if that's due to maturity, better light levels, or both.
.
I presume this will remain as a slow climber like an anthurium or similar, as despite it being a 'birds nest' type philo (parentage), it definetely wants to attach and climb a host and started out quite viney.
.
Time will tell. This is about 12 months of growth since I purchased it as a baby, so not a FAST grower indoors, but slowly becoming a hefty (or at least a spacially obtrusive) specimen.

Begonia 'Logan Prize'
Just a quick photo showing the intricate patterns and details.
.
This rex hybrid has been growing in hydroculture for the past few months and has been a bit of a learning process to get it to grow right.
.
The leaves on this plant really detest high humidity and constant dampness on the leaves. They'll rot in proximity to damp leca, so any new forming leaves keep dropping and the plant has trouble progressing.
.
The solution was to grow it differently. For this plant, I just water it like a potted plant, but with nutrient solution. I pour nutrients through the leca until it comes out the bottom and is just a very shallow puddle.
.
Over the next 24hrs, this absorbs into the leca to provide water to the plant for the week or so, without having the surface level damp and causing leaf or shoot drop.
.
It still needs the occasional flush, but it's so much happier in this much drier state. .

Philodendron elongatum (unrecognised name, unidentified species)
I cut down and tip propagated this (originally) 4 foot tall plant to reduce legginess and overall height about 5 months ago. .
It settled into hydroculture pretty well, protesting with some deformed leaves to begin, but it had no substantial roots to draw enough nutrient to supply the large, forming leaves. .
This occurs on occasion with a large unrooted cutting, but the plant settles in and returns to normal growth as the roots fill the pot and regular nutrient uptake returns. .

Microsorum musifolium 'Crocodyllus'
Roots in hydroculture. .
I've recently been inspecting (and potting on) a number of plants that were converted and left untouched for over 6 months.
.
While some, like this Crocodyllus fern, have remained in excellent root health, some have suffered significant root health deterioration, due to the permanent submergence and constant wet feet.
.
At the moment I'm trying to determine the underlying factors that predispose one species to poor health and another to excellent health. There doesn't seem to be any specific common growth characteristic between those that suffer or thrive though.
.
Most of my plants are epiphytes (growing ON or IN trees) and are used to a high level of drainage, drying of roots and air exposure to roots. However, some that naturally grow like this are incredibly productive in hydroculture, while others flounder over time.
.
The phenomena can't even be divided by genus. For example Rhapidophora decursiva is probably the best hydroculture grower I have, while Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is one of the worst.
.
This is part of the reason i haven't released my growing technique to general circulation just yet. I'm trying to present a more detailed analysis and find a way to incorporate flexibility, adaptability and regular assessment to the process. Also too improve ways to diagnose issues before they progress too far.
.
Part of this is so that when someone converts a prize specimen that I've never tried before and it doesn't do well, I don't get angry messages about it.
.
Maybe like the potential loss of say... an Athurium crystallinum... ahem, @aplantment 😅 fingers crossed it stays good 🤞...

Philodendron 'Royal Queen'
This is the mother plant for the cuttings now being grown by @growinggrounds @kateandfinn_vs_plants and @mendels.project. .
So basically, they have all the good new growth and this is the stumpy parent plant that I've been plugging away with for the last 4 years.
.
An unusually dark specimen, the newer growth is darker AND less green than the older leaves. It tends to lose a bit of the colouring in the individual leaves as they age. The new growth has no green whatsoever. .
AJ @growinggrounds has hers in full sun for part of the day, and the increase in growth rate has been phenomenal. I don't have the luxury of a sunny location, so am growing this entirely under 6500K flouros. It still grows fine, but I feel hers will surpass mine within a single year. .

Calathea musaica
This was originally one of the plants that was accidentally delivered to Bunnings and sold off really cheaply.
.
It's been sitting in the airflow from my big humidifier and soaking up the LED lighting with good results. .
First Calathea I've even owned actually. I've always grown other plants from the Marantaceae family like Ctenanthe and Maranta, but somehow never ended up with a Calathea.
.
Also first time buying a white coloured pot and also of using one of these style Decor self waterers, so it's a bit of something different all round 😁

Philodendron 'Glorious'
#philodendrongloriousprogress for development.
.
A couple months ago I was sent a Sustee water checker from @plantsinabox to trial and review (see second image).
. I've given this a fair run and can say honestly I'm a fan!
.
I've never liked using the probe type moisture checkers as the risk of damaging roots and transferring infection between pots had always been a major downside in my mind.
.
This is a set and forget, visual checker though and just sits in place and takes the guess work out of when to water, particularly with species like this, that really want that full wet/ dry cycle.
.
It's definetely improved my watering regime for this plant as I was previously watering more regularly without realising it didn't need it yet.
.
The only thing that I noticed to be cautious of, was inserting the unit into very coarse aroid mix risks breaking the fairly fragile tip of the unit. The easy solution was to pre-make a narrow hole/ pathway through the mix so that no force was required to pass the unit through the large material in the mix.
.
This 'Glorious' has topped out in my grow 'lab' and the new leaf was jammed amongst some structure in the roof. I have to leave it out now and work out what the next step is going to be.

Philodendron verrucosum
See #UGverrucosumprogress for growth history.
.
#lemonforscale
.
This is my 'spokesplant' for the benefits of using full ebb and flow hydroponics in the home environment for difficult species.
.
I'm going to need to build a seperate structure just to house this plant soon, as it's well on it's way to becoming my biggest specimen plant. Currently in third place, but at only 12 months old, it's fast outgrowing my five year old Monstera deliciosa and P. hastatum.
.
It's now a 'two rooted vines' specimen, as one of the vines has been air-layered and cut to create the other vine. That massive tip cutting is now due for another air- layering to result in the creation of a third vine. See my saved stories for the previous propagation.
.
The cut vine has three new growth points. One is much more dominant though and suppressing the growth of the other two, for now.
.
The reason I haven't mounted this on a moss pole, is that it needs regular cutting and demounting to reduce legginess. It's a strong vining species, meaning that it has large internode spacings and thereby requires regular propagation to remain manageable in my home environment.

Ficus dammaropsis
.
I spend too much time looking amongst the undergrowth and for climbers on the trunks to have noticed this enormous fig species!
.
It came as a shock that I could have missed such an impressive specimen, at such close range until it was pointed out by @wild.about.plants who was showing me a few little hidden gems that are easy to miss during a last minute catch up.
.
Thanks for the short and sweet guided tour Alicia, good to finally meet you! I need to look up more... thanks for the capture

Thanks goes to @flamingplatypi for some further insight into the correct ID for this one.
.
Often misidentified as M. lechleriana. In fact, many of the images given when searching that species seen to show the incorrect plant, which is just further the confusion as to which is which.

I'm up in Sydney cat-sitting and took the opportunity to have another walk around the botanic gardens. Found a few specimens I hadn't seen there before. .

I'm up in Sydney cat-sitting and took the opportunity to have another walk around the botanic gardens. Found a few specimens I hadn't seen there before. . . . . . . . . . #monstera #monsteraadansoniivarlaniata #royalbotanicgardens #araceae #aroid #aroidsofinstagram #aroidsocietyofaustralia #internationalaroidsociety #aroidfanatic #aroidlover #plantsinfocus #plantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #aussieplantclub #kateandfinn_vs_plants #grow_slow #instagreen #instaplant #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #indoorplant #biophilia #leavesonlyleaves #greenyourfeed #greentherapy #urb4n_gr33n

Monstera siltepecana
.
This type has disappointing silver markings in the juvenile leaves, in comparison to the other type that's in circulation.
.
I'll post on the comparison soon, when I have one of that type. That other type I've seen called 'El Salvador', though that could relate to collection origin.
.
This one is still a nice variety. It just keeps reverting to near solid green and the leaf size is much smaller than the other type.
.
This might be a result of light intensity or temperature, as this specimen is under lights. Though I have another in daylight that doesn't hold it's markings either.
.
Potentially, I'm over-lighting both of them and they might benefit from lower levels. Further experimentation needed.
.
One thing that brought back the silver was a hard pruning. This also increased leaf size and shortened internode spacing.
.
For those that know the species, the most interesting thing is that the leaves have begun to fenestrate within four nodes from the beginning of a new shoot. This is another sign that light levels are high.
.
I think I'll just add another moss pole and see what happens as it climbs.

Philodendron sodiroi
Abaxial leaf surface.
.
Many people don't realise how much red there is on a P. sodiroi.
.
The cataphylls (coverings of forming leaves), aerial roots and leaf veins are all a fire-engine red and visually set the details of the plant off!
.
The abaxial surface is the underside of the leaf that is specialised in gaseous exchange. . A couple of the suggested reasons for the underside of the leaf to have evolved to carry out more of the transpiration process are as follows:
.
An increased number of stomata (pores) on the underside, locates them in a position less likely to affected by blockages from falling detritus or rainwater.
.
Use of this side for transpiration (leaf breathing), leaves the upper surface more able to specialise towards the process of photosynthesis. Also, for implementation of sun protection for the leaf, such as a waxy coating, hairs or scales. .
The underside of sodiroi leaves is rarely celebrated, as it usually gets passed over for the distinctive, mottled-silver upper sides of the leaves. But it's one of the most stunning leaf backs in my collection!

Ludisia discolor
#ludisiaprogress
Bit of progress of it's first flowering since I've owned it.
.
Took it out of the pot to inspect roots, because its been a while. Discovered there is almost no roots at all. It really doesn't need much to keep it growing well when grown in hydroponics.
.
This spring it'll be time to propagate the leggier stems and add them back into the pot to keep the plants from sprawling too much.
.
Space is tight at the moment and it'll end up breaking off those stems if its not done surgically.

Typical Sunday night in the life of a hydroculture gardener.
.
Taking a chance to do a bit of tidying up and refreshing on some plants in hydroculture while layed up from a surgery.
.
It's a tricky affair doing it one handed, but good for the brain I hear! 😅
.
The plant is Begonia wightii. It had a little too much sun through the summer and has been a bit bleached by it, but the new growth that's come through recently, under lights, is the best it's produced.
.
This is a typical composition on my kitchen bench while working on these plants; part chemical lab, part public bar and part botanic garden.
.
Hope you've all had a good weekend 😁

Philodendron verrucosum
#philodendronverrucosum2progress for how it's coming along. .
The latest leaf took a good six weeks to form, but with the propagation still at this miniature size, that's to be expected.
.
Good leaf size increase, markings are more pronounced, petiole scales are becoming more prominent.
.
Not bad for some bald, skinny stem section that was pulled out of the bin!

Philodendron 'Neon'
I nought a tiny single node cutting of this from a kid on eBay who wrote my address on the envelope with crayon 😅 That was about 9 months ago.
.
It's been very slow to get growing, but once underway, it's turning into a nice little plant.
.
I particularly like the pink/ orange stems and cataphylls offset against the lime green of the leaves. Those warm colours also come through in the new growth.
.
Just a quick, simple post today as, for those who know, I'm recovering from the last of a series of surgeries for a work injury and will probably fall asleep while responding to any comments 😅
.
Thanks to @susany53 @theplanthoney_ @lelloves @jamesipy @tropikalina_ @kateandfinn_vs_plants @mendels.project @junglevariegata (and hopefully I haven't missed anyone, I'm drugged up)
.
Thanksfor helping keep my head right in the lead up to this and for checking up on me after the op. Such a wonderful group of people I've met through this plant interest on Instagram, I treasure all of you.

Philodendron 'Painted Lady'
Settling into hydroponics nicely. .
I'd never really paid much attention to this cultivar, as I'm usually more interested in species.
.
I receivied a cutting, as a gift, from my planty godmother @kateandfinn_vs_plants. I've taken an immediate liking to it and have gained a better appreciation for a lot of the 'man- made' philodendrons out there because of it. .
Interestingly, the aerial roots seem to grow upwards on this plant- against gravity. It was repotted before the photo, but all roots were growing straight upwards out of the pot and @junglevariegata said his is doing the same. .

Aechmea gamosepala 'Lucky Stripes'
Pulled this one out of my Dads garden and it's been in hydroculture since day one about 9 months ago.
.
Never put water into its reservoir, it's only drawing moisture up through the root system and seems fine with that, putting out a healthy flower spike and new pups. .
I've always liked this particular bromeliad cultivar, as it's one I used to grow 20 years ago, but had to let go

Schlumbergera x buckleyi
Full bloom, living large.
.
#buckleyiflowering for a 'before' shot.
.
I'm realising I should of repotted this before I brought it indoors, as the bloom is depriving some parts of the plant from nutrients.
.
Trying to feed well to counter the effect, but I'll lose some of the older cladodes that are sitting by themselves. No big deal. (Cladodes are the flattened stem sections that these epiphytic cacti have evolved instead of leaves)
.
Particularly good size bloom this year after 8 months of a thorough soil overhaul.
.
@lelloves tagging you because you wanted to see the finished full flower show 👌
.
Thanks again old rubbish-dump plant. You're a jewel. .

Monstera borsigiana aureum
This is the yellow variegated version of the crazy-popular albo variegata monstera.
.
Little seen on Instagram as the white is MUCH more on trend right now, but the yellow version is much more rarely seen for sale etc.
.
I'm lucky to have a friend like Areta @mendels.project She's the most proficient plant hunter and adept negotiator I've ever known 😅 lovely person as well! Take a look at her account if you haven't already!
.
This one has gone straight into hydroculture. The outer pot is a dress pot just for the pic, gifted by the ball-savvy @kateandfinn_vs_plants.
.
The plant will probably not do much for a couple of months while it settles in from the relocation, stress of conversion and change in environment.
.
The borsigiana type monsteras seem to grow ok through winter in my conditions, so hopefully I can get a leaf or two before spring!

This is the other part of my house that is hosting all the hardier, large plants that are currently indoors for winter, recent propagations, doubles and plants that prefer a bit less maximum humidity.
.
There's a mix of traditional potting media, 'pot in saucer' hydroculture and 'pots in tray' hydroculture. .
All of the structures I've knocked up are temporary and change with plant growth and needs.
.
I'm posting this as a contribution to my friend Kates @theplanthoney_ hashtag #plantsinmyspace.

Philodendron elegans
#elegansprogress for timeline and growth rate.
#lemonforscale
.
This guy is my hydroculture flagship plant. Growing in a passive setup now for about 6 months after being banished from the ebb and flow hydroponics tray. That was because it was shading out everything else.
.
Such a grand specimen. I love growing plants as big as possible, and a good east facing window, supplemental lighting and hydroculture is key for me in this pursuit. .

Rhaphidophora decursiva
This is a tip cutting that's ended up pulling itself our of the pot and the vine is now sitting above the surface level of the LECA in the pot. .
This species has phenomenal root growth in hydroculture, I've already potted the run aways back in the pot 3 times. Now they just run wild 😅
.
Receiving a few hours a day of full morning sun, this cutting and the two other specimens I have, act as sunlight diffusers for a bunch of more light sensitive plants that sit behind. .

Rhaphidophora decursiva This is a tip cutting that's ended up pulling itself our of the pot and the vine is now sitting above the surface level of the LECA in the pot. . This species has phenomenal root growth in hydroculture, I've already potted the run aways back in the pot 3 times. Now they just run wild 😅 . Receiving a few hours a day of full morning sun, this cutting and the two other specimens I have, act as sunlight diffusers for a bunch of more light sensitive plants that sit behind. . . . . . . . . #rhaphidophora #rhaphidophoradecursiva #araceae #aroid #aroidsofinstagram #aroidsocietyofaustralia #internationalaroidsociety #aroidfanatic #aroidlover #plantsinfocus #plantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #aussieplantclub #allaboutthemroots #kateandfinn_vs_plants #grow_slow #instagreen #instaplant #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #indoorplant #tropicalplant #biophilia #hydroculture #leca #leavesonlyleaves #houseplant #houseplantsofinstagram #greentherapy #urb4n_gr33n

Philodendron NOID (No Idendification)
These have been on eBay.au recently as cuttings of an unknown species for quite cheap. .
From the feelers I've put out, it's an undescribed species, but if anyone knowledgeable about this plant can shed any light, if love to hear it. .
The underside of new growth, the cataphylls and stem tip are a bright pink that fades as the leaves age. The stem and petioles have dark pink nectaries too. .
Beautiful vine, surprisingly big, rooted cuttings too. There's a few left of any one is interested

Philodendron verrucosum (left) and 'Glorious' (right)
Just about at the same leaf size now. These two plants are stand outs in my collection. .
Problem is, with leaves this big reaching towards the grow lights, as they do, the leaves easily shade out smaller plants below.
.
Leaves this size, taking the full intensity of the lights up close for 14hrs per day, tend to super charge the plant into big and fast growth, shading out the plants below even further.
.
There's no community spirit here! It's a constantly evolving space. I'm forever trying to position all of the 30 plus plants in this structure so that everything continues to grow and stay healthy.
.
Even within this 5 (or so) cubic metres of space, there's all kinds of micro climates and varied conditions going on. It's a battle for dominance in slow motion. I've been watching intently for 4 months straight now.
.
Whichever species gets out on top, dominates in size and growth rate until I force it out of the light and give another plant a chance to catch up.
.
In this setup, if I just left them to sort it out amongst themselves, verrucosum would shade everything out and totally dominate the space.
.
For a difficult plant, when the conditions are favorable, it is incredibly vigorous, far more than ANY other plant I currently grow. At some point it'll need it's own dedicated space!
.
Here endeth my novel. You've done well to make it this far!

Organised chaos...
Just some progress pics of how a couple of the main areas are looking at the moment.
.
I only just realised my main humidistat had been going out of calibration and the ambient humidity, even 10 metres away from the main unit, was about 90%!!!
.
That's not good for keeping condensation on cold walls at bay. A little reprogramming should have it sorted.
.
Fingers crossed 🤞

Schlumbergera x buckleyi
#buckleyiflowering to see the buds open
.
An old school cultivar that was saved from death at the tip, looking extremely unwatered and neglected. .
That was maybe 4 years ago and it's been a prolific flowerer every year since.
.
When I found it, there was no green in any of the cladodes (modified stem), and some branches were so far gone, they had to be removed to save the plant because it was so close to death. One of the dying branches was about 90cms long and almost 3 cms in diameter!
.
Since that heavy prune and potting mix freshen, I gave it a rest period of a few years to regain health and vigour. At the start of last spring I disturbed the root ball severely to rid it of the original mix that had set like a concrete block around the base of the trunk and potted up in size. .
Since then, it's had a great season of growing this year and the winter flower show is set to be a huge one. .
I don't know the age of this plant, but an educated estimate puts it well over thirty years old. It's currently 85cms (34') wide!

Begonia U660, also known (apparently incorrectly) as Begonia cirrosa.
.
This beautiful species is apparently unidentified after all, but one of my favorites in the small begonia collection I have going. .
It's nit going to amass an enormous size due to its low growing, creeping habit, but I like that I don't need to struggle to accommodate it like some of the big aroids I grow. .
It's very content in cool conditions, moderate humidity and dry potting media. I grow it in terracotta and let it dry thoroughly between waterings and it's been thriving like that for 3 years or so now.
.
Currently in flower, though the flowers have nothing on the beautiful, felt, Lily pad- like leaves. The petioles of which, seem you continue lengthening well after last formation. .

Philodendron sodiroi
#sodiroiprogress for continuation
.
What needs to said about this beautiful species?... look at those juvenile leaves...
.
This is really picking up in growth rate, in hydroponics, as it amasses an increasing number of leaves.
.
Temperatures have now hit as low as they should get in the grow room, the heater maintaining a stable 17-18°C all day long. Occasional rises to 20° in the middle of the day is all.
.
It should continue to put out a leaf every 3-4 weeks through the middle of winter, so long as my reverse cycle air-con/ heater stays up to the task. I have a large plug in oil heater with a plug and play digital thermostat as a backup for any potential hearing failures.

Philodendron verrucosum #lemonforscale
See #UGverrucosumprogress for growth rate.
.
Probably the prime specimen in my little collection. .
This plant has recovered well from its recent air layering and drastic cut back. It now has four growing tips (not shown), including the original apical point. Three of these are still forming leaves. The main vine is due for air layering again already, it's a prolific grower.
.
It's loving being in proper flood and drain (or ebb and flow) hydroponics and under growing lights. It's also located in the air stream of a nearby reverse cycle air conditioner. This doesn't matter at all, so long as the localised humidity is kept at a suitable level.
.
A 60L, 10 head, ultrasonic, custom humidifier does that job, and is the only reason why I can get such big leaves indoors. The ducted airflow from that unit, in combination with the air con, keeps the room air moving and always a fresh air flow runs over this plant.
.
At the moment, it's crowded in with 30 other species, but I'm thinking about isolating it into it's own dedicated space, I enjoy this plant that much!

Fittonia albivenis cv.
Aka Nerve Plant, a South American rainforest floor species. It's a beautiful ground cover that should love hydroculture technique and the high humidity I provide. .
I've failed with this plant before, years ago. Due to its constant moisture requirements being it's main characteristic for difficulty, conversion into hydroponics should make it a lot easier to succeed with.
.
It has VERY fine roots, so it was a difficult process to seperate these from the existing potting media. Probably the most fragile root system I've attempted to convert so far.
.
The small amount of potting media that I was forced to leave attached to the roots was soaked in fungicide to try and keep any potential fungal blooms at bay, at least until the plant can recover from the transfer shock.
.
Don't those red nerves look great against a black background?

Begonia maculata 'Wightii'
Full bloom on this one too, the massive spray of flowers make for an even more amazing looking plant.
.
This really is one of the showiest plants I own. Considering the combination of alien, polka dotted leaves, the leaf shape and the huge sprays of pure white flowers.
.
Growing in semi hydro/ hydroculture, cane-type begonias are not at all fussy about watering and grow fine in constant saturation OR with periods of drying out.
.
Really, the biggest issue I've had with this plant was over humidifying it. It seems happiest in around 70%, although lately, with temperatures dropping and relative humidity climbing, it's handling above 80% with no troubles for now.
.
It may have been a matter of too much vapour in direct contact with leaves, rather than the moisture content of the air once the vapour had dissipated. This direct contact may have been causing surface condensation that was allowing infection to take hold.
.
It is definitely happier out of the vapour flow at any rate. Now it retains every leaf produced, where it was dropping most new leaves before.
.
It's received morning sun all spring and summer, hence the prolific flowering.

Begonia listada
Holding onto a couple of remaining female flowers.
.
Begonia are a monoecious genus, producing both male and female flowers separately in the same plant.
.
These are female flowers. The stigmas are yellow and look like the stamens of the male flower. Stamens normally contain a reward of pollen for a pollinating insect. These bright yellow parts just mimic the male flowers however and attract insects without the expense of a reward.

Philodendron gigas
#philodendrongigasprogress
A real performer in the setup that I'm providing. @jamesipy recently referred to this fabricated environment as 'The Plant Spa' 🤣
.
P. gigas was a favourite for a long time and I was generously gifted this example from the wonderful Erik @unitednaturesdesign. It's been thriving in my care and getting very top heavy, so I'm in the process of air layering it into LECA suspended midway up the stem, seen in the pic.
.
That's going well as far as I can see. The node above is putting roots down into it, so the node that's wrapped should be doing well.
.
I'm planning on doing quite a large cutting, particularly as the plant keeps putting out massive leaves as I wait for it to root. The new root ball will go into hydroponics, so doesn't need to be as substantial as a root ball for potting media. This means I can take quite a large cutting and be confident it will handle the shock of being cut in half fairly well.
.
Also, since the air layering is directly into LECA, there's no root disturbance as with sphagnum air layering. The trade off is more attention is required to keep the LECA damp enough for substantial root growth.

The trade off is more attention is required to keep the LECA damp enough for substantial root growth. . . . . . . . . #philodendron #philodendrongigas #araceae #aroid #aroidsofinstagram #aroidsocietyofaustralia #internationalaroidsociety #aroidfanatic #aroidlover #plantsinfocus #plantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #aussieplantclub #kateandfinn_vs_plants #grow_slow #instagreen #instaplant #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #indoorplant #tropicalplant #biophilia #hydroculture #hydroponics #leca #greenyourfeed #greentherapy #urbanjungle #urb4n_gr33n

Schlumbergera x buckleyi (Or Christmas cactus due to it flowering around the Christmas period in northern hemisphere)
.
Last year I pollinated the flowers on this old cultivar with the pollen taken from a couple of different modern cultivars of S. truncata and these are the 9 month old fruits.
.
This epiphytic cactus takes a long time to ripen it's fruits, but the recent increase in colour, in combination with this year's bud set is a sign that they may be getting close to ready.
.
I'm not planning on germinating 1000s of cactus seeds to try and find an interesting hybrid, but I'll do a select number just for interests sake. I was more keen to see the fruiting process.
.
This is a 30yr old plus plant and likely the first time it's eaver been pollinated before, poor thing 😅

Philodendron sodiroi
Picture taken of the specimen in-situ in the hydroponics tray, amongst all the other plants. .
It's a very high density of plants in the hydro tray for a few reasons.
.
One is that there is limited space for pots in the tray, so I'm trying to make the most of the available space.
.
Secondly, because I'm relying on artificial lights, the greatest energy efficiency is achieved in a small concentrated area.
.
Thirdly, a greater density of leaves creates more stable localised humidity.
.
Fourthly I like the looks of a wall of plants 😅
.
The tray is ventilated by automated, humidified air, so that keeps things stable regardless. However, creating a tight density of leaves and reading the humidity from under the canopy means that less water needs to end up being pumped into the room.
.
The sodiroi loves this setup! It's exposed to both the cooled and heated air from a nearby reverse cycle air conditioner, but also regular air movement from the humidification system.
.
Lots of air movement and air exchange helps to improve plant biological processes and keep mildew and mould under control when supplying high humidity, but is also often hard to achieve in practice.
.
Blowing the localised humidity away will usually result in lowered local humidity, UNLESS the air replacing it is high humidity too. This means the ambient humidity of the room needs to match the displaced air or else air movement can have a drying effect. .

Philodendron 'Burle Marx Fantasy'
Take a look at a concurrent post by @kateandfinn_vs_plants for the previous node from this same mother plant growing separately in a different location and conditions!
.
Thank you ever so much to the wonderful AJ @growinggrounds for making this a reality, i have dome serious cutting debt to you. You've more or less got the pick of my garden 🙏
.
Kate's cutting is in sphagnum still, mine has made the transition to hydroponics and is under artificial light only. It's taken a short while to adjust to the transition, which was a setback, but it's under 13000lux light levels so should take off.
.
It'll be interesting to see how the two plants develop differently in differing conditions and hopefully she'd some light on effective growing info for this rarely written about cultivar (or species or whatever it ends up being decided it is)

Philodendrons verrucosum, gloriosum and elegans.
.
Heading into winter here in Australia. Around this time of year a number of the plants in my collectuon will terminate an older leaf or two in a riot of colour.
.
These are three of the bigger plants I have and all contributed their oldest leaf to this little composition. The elegans goes such an amazing bright yellow and holds its leaf for a long time into senescence. The other two seem to begin decomposition whilst still in the nutrient resorption stage, at least they do in my conditions.
.
A number of nutrients in leaves are mobile and can be relocated in the plant for priority usage in new growth or recycling before leaf drop. This yellowing is likely a combination of chlorophyll death and Nitogen resorption in particular, though any plant scientist out there, please correct me if I'm a bit off the mark and I'll edit for clarity.
.
Regardless, they're purdy and I'm tidying up a bit for a few Instagram visitors dropping by later in the week.

Begonia 'Sophie Cecile' (we think)
A gift from my plant enabler @kateandfinn_vs_plants who has just been featured on a website with a very large audience, so has recently picked up a tonne of new followers. Don't feel obliged to go look at her account, she has had enough attention lately 😅
.
One of the cane variety Begonia cultivars, these do very well having their roots constantly wet in hydroculture, which is good, otherwise it would look terrible in my care. That's not a good look for a gift plant...
.
Beautiful velvet leaves, easy to propagate, fast growing, doesn't need high humidity, can take dry soil etc, an all-round great indoor plant.

Zamioculcus zamiifolia 'Jungle Warrior' (edit: thanks @verdantdwellings)
.
A few of my plant acquisitions recently have been inspired by the personal taste of my friend Areta @mendels.project and this is one of those.
.
Always liked the standard green zz plant, but never thought to make room for one. After being pointed out (by Areta) the dark cultivars, I really wanted one of these to grow.
.
This little starter specimen was a gift from the f$&king amazing AJ (@growinggrounds) who I can't thank enough for it!
.
This is an African genus from the Araceae family and very different in form compared to the better known Philodendron and Anthurium genera. That is until you see the flower and can instantly recognise the similarities shared by the family.

Philodendron gigas
A couple of the larger, recent leaves, showing the incredible velvet texture this species is known for.
.
It's hard to capture the beauty of this plant as all the leaves face in different directions and it's a very tall and narrow specimen at the moment. .
I'm in the process of air layering it to begin again with a stouter plant that has larger leaves closer to the bottom and a thicker stem down low. The aim of this is to try and get a good, robust base to make a tidy climbing specimen from.
.
The air layering I'm attempting this time is straight into LECA clay balls suspended in a small plastic bag around a node and sprayed or watered as often as I can, preferably at least twice daily. I can see some root growth action already, so it looks to be a viable technique. .
This will save an awkward step when transferring from the previous air layering arrangement (in sphagnum moss) to hydroponics, as untangling and seperating the roots from the long strand sphagnum moss is tedious and does a lot of root damage.

Begonia listada, #listadaprogress
I cheated and added a new small rooted cutting from the Sydney Plant Collectors Fair to the pot, but it's been looking pretty boss, regardless. Even in flower, though they're hidden in the pic. .
This Begonia seems content in hydroculture with its roots permanently (partly) submerged. It also prefers lower than 75% humidity and is much happier without any full sun exposure.
.
It's been a favourite for a long time and I've failed with it before, so having the beginnings of a good specimen plant that may one day compare with the stunner owned by Sing (@kuorgette), makes me feel like a success as a grower... Moreso than some more 'difficult' species.
.
Love those electric green stripes...

This is a reconfigure of the plant layout to make better use of the vertical space and tie up some errant vines.
.
The setup works so well, I can't keep on top of the growth rate of some of the faster growing Philodendron. By the time I've gotten through the lot and added bigger poles or support etc, I just have to restart because the first ones are overgrowing their supports etc. .
This pic contains 35 different species, out of that, 32 are in flood and drain hydroponics and the other 3 are potted and sitting on a shelf at the back. .
This shot is taken at night when all the lights are normally off, I just have the room lights on to do some work and thought I'd take a snap of the new layout. .

Philodendron 'Glorious' plus me.
I don't put myself in many pics, but this new leaf needed some scale for size, plus it's about time I put a face to the account again.
.
I've about maxxed out how big this plant can get in its current situation, so need to work out what happens next... constant problem lately, but a good problem to have I suppose.
.
Bit of a shout-out post to a heap of great accounts and people I interact with lately that are a constant source of inspiration, humour and/or personal connection.

Thanks to all of you for enriching my plant world so much!

Philodendron 'Painted Lady'
A gift from the occasionally wonderful @kateandfinn_vs_plants
.
Straight into hydro and it's quickly settled in and pumping out new leaves.
.
I never had that much interest in cultivars until I acquired a few, but I really like the weird and wonderful mixes and sports nowadays.
.
I still prefer pure species, as conserving what nature has created is pretty important to me. But for pure enjoyment of indoor growing and to be able to easily care for some wonderful plants without an elaborate setup, the myriad of cultivars definitely have their place.
.
Thanks Kate, I'm actually really liking this one x

Begonia maculata 'Wightii''
Now in flower and doing really well in a bit too much sun, but still happy. See 2nd pic for close up. .
This has been a tricky species for me to get conditions right for, but now seems to be quite content in reduced humidity and brighter light. . Cane Begonias seem to do quite well in passive hydroponics, where rex type Begonias need an altered technique with dry periods to prosper it seems. .

Begonia maculata 'Wightii'' Now in flower and doing really well in a bit too much sun, but still happy. See 2nd pic for close up. . This has been a tricky species for me to get conditions right for, but now seems to be quite content in reduced humidity and brighter light. . Cane Begonias seem to do quite well in passive hydroponics, where rex type Begonias need an altered technique with dry periods to prosper it seems. . . . . . . . #begonia #begoniamaculata #begoniamaculatawightii #begoniabrigade #plantsinfocus #plantsofinstagram #plantlove #plantsmakepeoplehappy #aussieplantclub #kateandfinn_vs_plants #grow_slow #instagreen #instaplant #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #indoorplant #tropicalplant #biophilia #hydroculture #leca #leavesonlyleaves #houseplant #houseplantsofinstsgram #houseplantjournal #greenyourfeed #greentherapy #myjungle #urbanjungle #urb4n_gr33n

Philodendron verrucosum
#philodendronverrucosum2progress for growth rate over 1 month, from first signs of growth
.
I can't believe how much bigger the second leaf is, that this leafless scrap vine has put out!
.
It's only really been the food produced by the chlorophyll in the stem and the previous petiole that has driven the development of this leaf, which is an increase in size over the previous by about 30x !!
.
It's early days yet, but I'm recording the entire development of this little stem bit into a mature plant to demonstrate the effectiveness of hydroponics as a complete 'propagation through to production' growing technique.
.
Literally all I've done to achieve this beginner specimen is stick some seemingly unusable offcut stem into the system and wait long enough. Voila!

Philodendron burle-marxii. Good when small. Soon to take over a space near you...
.
This species readily branches and has multiple apical points. These points in turn branch readily. Because of this, it tends to blanket cover sizeable areas. .
