Dear Adam,

It may be of help to know that I saw a species of Cochliostema with the most
beautiful sprays of BLUE flowers growing oin the 'Y`s' of trees just like a
Bromeliad near Lago Agrio in E. Ecuador where their leaves acted much like a
litter basket, collecting falling debris from the canopy.    I was very
taken by their beauty!   I`d grow them in a loose, well draining medium in a
hanging basket.   I also saw them being grown VERY well at Selby Bot. Garden
in W. Florida, maybe someone there who may be lurking on this list may give
us some pointers??


>>Not an aroid question, but I would like to hear from anyone (off list,
of course) who has experience growing and propagating the beautiful
bromeliad-like Cochliostema sp.
