    Default thrixspermum acuminatissimum, philippines

    hi folks,

    this thrixspermum is found in south-east asia and so far the most beautiful and interesting for me!
    i takes 3 full days to open fully and i documented it, bloom lasts only 1 day, but as you can see on those long spikes, it keeps on going....
    no fragrance though and i wonder what pollinator it has.

    here we go, dont you like the opening stage, a squid like monster...?

    Some of the species in this genus have some beautiful flowers, unfortunately they are not available here in U.S. What a beauty, Ron. Thanks for sharing.

    hi tom,
    yeah, what a shame you cant get your hands on this genus, they would do well in your basement.

    Ron, what other Thrixs species do you have in your collection? I only have T. japonicum.
