    Default Robiquetia compressa and Robiquetia pantherina of Philippines

    I have in total three or four Robiquetia from Philippines. One of them were flowering in December. The second is blooming now.
    That white flower of Rob. compressa are the most beautiful to me.
    The yellow flower; I think it's Rob. pantherina, but I'm not sure. Maybe Jim can ID this plant.

    The white one is charming and elegant, but yellow one is also beautiful.... Like both of them!

    lanhua, I am really in love with the R. compressa. It is gorgeous!
    Years ago, I bought one labels as R. compressa and frankly it turned out to be the yellow one like yours. Two years ago, a grower here in U.S was selling this yellow species as R. cerina...I would love to hear from Jim C. also, so I can put a correct label on my plant if it is not R. cerina.

    You're kidding... those are Philipino species and they should be everywhere...

    Tom, Rob. compressa I've got two, from my friend. The plants became for him to big. They are around 60 cm long and 30 cm wide, but the flowers were really gorgeous.
    As you know, Rob. cerina has red flowers.
    I don't think Robiquetias are very commen plants.

    I haven't so beautiful Robiquetias. I just ever picked up a Robiquetia succica on the ground when walking under a tree beside a mountain river.

    Color is not my biggest concern when it comes to ID. Let's see what Jim will say.

    I wish you were living here... I would take one of your R. compressa off your hand.......

    Hi Mietek,

    The 1st photo is a Robiquetia compressa, and 2nd, 3rd, and 4th photos is a Robiquetia pantherina.

    They are magnificent. They are one of the "Cloud Plants of the Philippine Rainforest" prefers cool environment.


    Best Regards,

    Derek

    There you have it.

    Decoy is quite reliable in identifying Philippine species most of the time. Whenever I meet him in the garden with other collectors buying plant species, I often ask him to identify some of the plants I bought.
