Hydnophytum formicarum from Duke Medium Form

There are several forms of Hydnophytum formicarum being grown in the USA. This is a young plant of a medium sized form of Hydnophytum formicarum that can be traced back to a plant in the collection at Duke University, not the largest form whose caudex can get over two feet in diameter.. The plants top out at about 12 to 18 inches tall with a 5 or 6 inch diameter caudex. Once mature the plant is in almost constant flower and fruit mode. The caudex is intricately etched with ridges – very different looking from the more smooth caudex of the Horne form or the form from Singapore.
Hydnophytum formicarum from Singapore

This species has a great caudex - chocolate brown color, mostly smooth but with some low ridges My material of this species can be traced back to seeds off a plant on a fallen branch in the Central Water Catchment in Singapore.
Hydnophytum formicarum Small Form

The plant can be traced back to a collection circulating in some European botanical gardens. There are several forms of Hydnophytum formicarum being grown in the USA. This is the smallest form. At maturity the caudex will be about 4 inches across and the plant will be less than a foot tall. This plant is suitable for culture in a terrarium.
Hydnophytum moseleyanum

No provenance for this plant. Acquired 3/12/2016 from eBay seller littlegardeninthecountry.
Hydnophytum papuanum

Hydnophytum moseleyanum is a well-known, widespread and variable lowland species in the islands of Southeast Asia. A closely related species is Hydnophytum papuanum. It has smaller leaves than H. moseleyanum that often have curled edges. The caudex tends to have a rougher texture and conical shape. The plant I am offering today can be traced back to a plant at the Marie Selby Botanical Garden, their accession #1988-0077. There is considerable speculation that H. papuanum will get lumped into H. moseleyanum in the coming revision of the genus Hydnophytum.
Hydnophytum puffii

Purchased from Charles Alford, originally obtained by him from Frank Omilian. Here's what he says about it on his site
Biopower PLants - Hydnophytums
"This plant sometimes goes by the unpublished name of Hydnophytum perangustum. Unusual leaves. Good to grow if you are short on growing space because it stays compact and the caudex stays small. It grows as an epiphyte on swamp trees on Borneo. My material can be traced back to accession # 95007 at the Leiden Botanical Garden in the Netherlands. According to a note published on Facebook in January 2016 by D. Rowe “It was collected by Art Vogel then curator at the Leiden Botanical Garden, Netherlands, from a heath forest near Nabawan in December 1995. Nabawan is a small town in central Sabah south of Kota Kinabalu on Borneo Island.” Photographed here is a 14 year old seed grown plant in a 4 inch pot."

Monolena primuliflora

Very nice epiphytic caudiciform.
Myrmecodia beccarii

Acquired 8/2/2016 from eBay seller psricks. No mention of provenance.
Myrmecodia beccarii

Labeled as Myrmephytum beccarii from Tully, Queensland, Hill River Selby '1989-0149 Purchased from Charles Alford. Blueish white flowers. Seeds white with faint blue stripes. I actually think this is a Myrmecodia baccarrii.
Myrmecodia platytyrea "Mossman Gorge, AU"

Seeds under this name came out of Australia a number of years ago and the plants have attracted a serious amount of interest and discussion because they differ from the typical M. platytyrea in several very noticeable ways. Specifically the leaves are fairly succulent (regular platytyrea leaves are not) and the arrangement of the clypeoli is significantly different (not a continuous line of gaps between them as in regular platytyrea). 8 Seeds sown 3/21/2016
Myrmecodia platytyrea, unusual ant-plant, with provenance, Tropiflora 2998

Myrmecodia platytyrea is native to the island of New Guinea and the Cape York area of Australia. The species name platytyrea is often misspelled – this is the correct spelling*. The key features that make me certain of this identification are the long flowers (16 to 18 mm) and the way the leaf bases (clypeoli) line up like gently twisting kernels on a corn cob on the stem of adult plants. In habitat adult plants often hang straight down from tree branches! Aquired 7/7/2016
Myrmecodia species with pink fruit

This is a Myrmecodia that is being grown worldwide but no one knows what species it is so it is in the trade as “Myrmecodia species with pink fruit”. The fruits can actually be a little on the red side of pink, but the color is always strikingly different than that of other Myrmecodias which usually have orangish fruits. (Recently some people have championed the opinion that this plant is actually Myrmecodia tuberosa ‘papuana’ from Australia. I am not convinced yet but agree that this is a possibility) Another reason it is sought after is that it is probably the spiniest Myrmecodia in cultivation. Well grown plants will even have some stellate spines on the stems. The plants can get fairly large and they tend to grow somewhat sideways in the pot. Aquired 3/12/2016
Myrmecodia tuberosa 'armata'

When Drs. Huxley and Jebb revised the genus in 1993 they lumped what had been 22 of those separately described species into one species - Myrmecodia tuberosa. This made M. tuberosa a widespread, highly variable species. They refer to the formerly separate species as variants of Myrmecodia tuberosa and they notate them with single quote marks like this: Myrmecodia tuberosa ‘armata’ The lumped species Myrmecodia armata was itself a widespread and variable species. It grows from Vietnam south thru Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra Java and Borneo. In spite of the name “armata” that would imply a highly spined plant most plants have rather sparse, scattered spination. Myrmecodia tuberosa ‘armata’ is rarely offered for sale in the US. This particular plant can be traced back to material at the Atlanta Botanical Garden (ABG 1990-1053) with collection data noted as “Malaya” - an area where the variant ‘armata’ is from. Acquired 3/12/2016
Myrmecodia tuberosa 'dahlii'

This is NOT one of the usual forms of M. tuberosa. This one has wavy margins on the leaves as they get older and comes from the eastern part of Myrmecodia’s home range. These plants are now referred to as Myrmecodia tuberosa ‘dahlii' if they come from the island of New Britain as this one does. (Nearby islands have similar species like Myrmecodia tuberosa 'salomonensis' from the Solomon Islands.) The really interesting thing about these plants is that they make some thick, rubbery roots that anchor the plant to the tree trunk and branches - often with the plant hanging pendulously by these roots in nature. Sometimes in habitat the roots are 12 to 18 inches long! I have mounted some of these plants hanging by their roots and it makes for a very interesting presentation. The thick rubbery roots form when the plant is about the size that would require it to be growing in a 4 inch pot. Acquired 3/12/2016
Myrmecodia tuberosa from Borneo

This plant has very thick stems as it gets older, over 1-1/4 inches in diameter. It becomes an impressive specimen. I can offer no further provenance on this species. 8 Seeds sown 3/21/2016
Myrmecodia tuberosa 'papuana'

This plant can be traced back to seeds collected from plants in the McIlwraith Range in Queensland, Australia. The caudex has seriously stout spines up to 1.5 cm long. 8 Seeds sown 3/21/2016
Myrmephytum species with yellow fruit from the Philippines

There are 5 genera of Rubiaceous ant-plants: The two most cultivated and well know are Hydnophytum and Myrmecodia. Two others, Anthorrhiza and Squamellaria, are not in cultivation. This genus, Myrmephytum, is very rare in cultivation. One species, Myrmephytum beccarii, was offered on eBay back in about 2008 This species was offered on eBay for the first time ever last year. It is from the Philippines and is easily distinguished from Myrmephytum beccarii (red fruits) by its yellow fruits. All the Myrmephytums have fleshy purplish-brown bracts and star-like flowers with blue petals that fade gradually to white Acquired 3/12/2016
