Aeschynanthus lineatus

線條芒毛苣苔

Last time I was here without seeing any color due to it's dry season, this time I see the cloudy forest is decorated with lovely red flowers which seems floating through the cool breeze and moss. It's my second time to Doi Inthanon and I was there for a full day to visit the national park. The habitat of Aeschynanthus lineatus is 1800 meters above sea level. It's cool , not cold in summer ... good place to cool down the spirit by listening the bird's singing after shower.

This is summer !!!

Huge plant is always an eye-catcher. I love to see the vital power that the huge plant shows.

Again ... Kohleria "Designer's Formosa Taiwan" but in Singapore :-)

Glad to know this miniature Kohleria does well in aircon room in Singapore. It seems my previous assumption is right that it blooms well when the growing condition is stable. Regarding the plant introduction please click here for more details. By the way, I believe this mini Kohleria will be available in sale during TGS convention 2015 in San Francisco, CA :)

Paraboea multiflora

On the way to a waterfall near Chiang Mai, Thailand , I encountered this lovely plant called Paraboea multiflora at 300 meters above sea level. It is found exposing under sunlight and growing on the rock which is covered with a layer of humus soil. I did not see its flower in situ but later on I saw it when I visited a plant nursery.

Bouquets

I like the family of Sinningia speciosa , especially those can perform the bouquet-liked cluster of flowers.

Both Smithiantha hybrids were not yet fully developed last year but I gave the name first for easy memory. The plant details will be added in the future.
