    An unexpected find in the flooded forest of Rio Negro (Brazil).
    Evidently it grows here in very warm conditions, even though I knew it as being a montane species / genus.
    It grows in shady conditions high on flooded trees. IMG_3093 (678x1024).jpg

    My Trisatella andreeteae is languishing although it stays between 68 and 74. It looks a lot like this triglochin.

    Interesting, isn't it? Some species have an amazing power to adapt...

    Trisatella andreeteae is listed as coming from 1600 meters. I would think it needs cool conditions.

    Indeed, the night temperatures are not low enough. I got the division from Brooklyn Botanical Garden and it was in bloom. Since then it has lost leaves and I'm afraid it's a gonner.
