Lepismium cruciforme 'Henrique'
An interesting clone; this species which we received from the collection of Henrique Graf in Venezuela. The stems stay primarily three sided and are green blushing purplish in strong light with many adventitious roots. Flowers borne at each lobe of the stem have an open shape with violet petals. A handsome and unusual form.
Note: This plant is on C.I.T.E.S. and cannot be exported.
Lepismium cruciforme 'Pink Flowers'
An especially attractive form of L. cruciforme with pretty pink flowers that we obtained originally from the collection of the Marie Selby Botanical Garden. Native to Southeastern Brazil down to Paraguay and Argentina and is found most commonly on rocks and as an epiphyte in trees. Variable in color with flowers from white to greenish and pink to magenta. This form is pink flowered, which seems to be on the rarer side. Foliage is ribbed or angled, about 3/8th to 1/2 inch wide and straight, not spiraled. The color is mostly green but will blush red when stressed by bright light or by withholding food or water.
CITES plant, no export.
