Hello Gerrit,

Again you show wonderful plants. Now you have, nevertheless, a Leucheria in your collection ;D ;D... my congratulation. Hopefully you can receive them long... she is great. Another two plants of the week-end...

Calceolaria laceolaria and Hypsela reniformis.

The seeds were wrongly labelled as Perezia. Now it seems to be Leucheria. Not bad hé.

A peculiar and beautiful Calceolaria.

Never heard of Hypsela reniformis and I like it. It grows in South-America indeed.

Hypsela reniformis has now been renamed as Lobelia oligophylla which is now the accepted name. Its flowers vary in colour from white to pink with darker markings and it always grows in wet boggy conditions. It may be best with the pot standing in a saucer of water, since if it dries out you will probably lose it. It's in the campanula family.

Thanks for the new name... Martin. With me it stands the whole year in the Alpinum and it grows very well.

I have 2 seedlings of Viola cotyledon. Now I must put them in a definitive pot. But in which soil? Is there anybody, who can give me advice?
Thomas in which soil your violas grow?

Viola polypoda, Endemic to Chile, growing in very dry soil at sea level. First flower, hopefully the plant will grow somewhat. It is so tiny.

Oh my, that's lovely. I don't think we've ever seen that in the forum before!

 Just this question about germinating the seed.... way back in 2009......  http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=3092.0

Very special indeed. How old is this plant? And how do you treat him?

Today the first flower on Calandrinia ranunculina, a species from southern Patagonia. This species provides mostly a single flower a day. So, it is not very showy.

We have a rosulate viola flowering at the moment. Viola subandina is an extremely variable annual or (very) short-lived perennial. Flowers can be white, pink, lavender or blue and quite variable in size. These have minute flowers (even for V. subandina) - 4mm across! These soft-leaved andinium violas flower for quite a few weeks, with new flowers opening each morning, fading by mid-afternoon.
The last time we grew this species every plant was cleistogamous, failing to open its flowers, but producing lots of seed. Some populations in the wild are thought reproduce mainly through cleistogamy.
