This one is located in the Drip Wall Viv, I got from Josh....

It's an awesome plant and I've been taking a series of shots every day or so, thru the Viv glass, to chart it's growth progress.

Hopefully Josh...or Nate or Todd...see's this and can fill me in as to the exact Species....

From Josh K's eBay store:

Seemannia sylvatica ~ Beautiful gesneriad!

Terrarium Plant!

Here is a beautiful specimen of Seemannia sylvatica. This tropical gesneriad hails from the rainforests of Bolivia, Peru, and Brazil where it grows on along streams and waterfalls. It has beautiful green foliage and bright flame red blooms. Very striking and a must for gesneriad collectors who wish to stray beyond the ordinary. It makes lots of small rhizomes/propagules that readily sprout new plants, and is extremely easy to propagate and share. I use this in large terrariums to plant around waterfalls and on mossy rocks along streams. Its sporadic and intensly red blooms are perfectly scaled for the terrarium without looking too big.

Easy to grow in windows, under grow lights or in a large terrarium. Plant in any well draining soil mix, I use Miracle Grow Palm and Cactus with some extra course perlite thrown in. Loves moisture

Craig...here's that mystery 'Marijuana" plant's flower which is pretty cool. Please resist the urge to take a cultivar of it just yet. I think it's not in the best shape. Todd S. should have some of them growing, I would hope, as he took a few clippings.

actually, now that I think about it....this plant is the one that is going wild and can be cut, right ? So confusing...

I think it's the one directly in the center that we were talking about.
