    Default Trigonidium ergotonianum

    This plant is being grown bright with my Catts in semi-hydroponic (S/H) culture. I collected this in Belize four years ago.

    WOW! It looks like some kind of funky alien...see the two eyes and the big cone-shaped head?

    Kewl!

    Especially from the front it reminds me of the face of an exotic shrimp or other crustacean.

    Is it a large plant?

    Cheers.

    I was kind of thinking maybe it's a distant cousin of a preying mantis.... maybe an alien preying mantis??


    Very interesting, and such striking colour and patterning.. You've mentioned the size of the plant, but what is the size of the blooms? Sometimes I see plants in flower on the forum, and then don't realise that in real life they are actually really very tiny or even absolutely blooming humungous and I am so surprised!
