Wow, that N. basilissa is something special,  8) ??? 8)

Almost 'Fritillaria subgenus Liliorhiza ' like in its leaf arrangement, ( from these pictures obviously! ). This is one that had slipped under my radar :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ... more fool me!

Can anyone add any additional information please?? :)

Didn't know he has moved to China. He lives not very far from here but I have never met him in person. I know he often travels to China though ;)

Oh man. That red nomocharis is truly worth lusting over. Tropical orchid geeks think nothing of putting special heaters and humidifiers in their greenhouses so maybe we could put air conditioners in ours?  Of course there is the little problem of energy costs. But hey money is no object in pursuit of the rare plant, right?  Imagine the bragging rights that red nomocharis would give you.

Actually who am I kidding, flowering any nomocharis around here gives you bragging rights.

Try this one for another selection of pictures. Either it is very variable or there is some odd identification

Thanks for that Tony. Seems like the name has been applied to very different plants here,  ???. The leaf arrangements for one seem to be quite different. ??? Seems like one to be wary of, if advertised for sale  :o

Jan,
I would have thought you would have a fairly good chance with Nomocharis in your area. What seems to be going wrong?

Tony, I think that is another "arisaema" - another SRGC Forumist, who usually uses that as his ID, but changes to "cardamine" on the SRGC is heavily involved in such websites, and I think those photos may be his.
He said this on the SRGC site : I always use arisaema as my userID on websites, the same with a hero member here ( on srgc). Indeed, a hyperlink in his post gave me the clue leading me to this forum, and then I was coming. This is interesting, but I have to choose another userID here ::)

I have a gallery on nature-museum website, more then 100,000 photos and nearly 4,000 species. Please aware about the username is arisaema ;D

User account names on mail domains are much harder to get, because they typically have millions upon millions of accounts, unlike a smaller forum like NARGS or SRGC, where the number of account names is merely in the thousands.

good job I hedged my bets by saying 'if'

It is a super website he has. I think getting a good red one is going to be very difficult and could cause much heartache after years of growing from seed. I wonder if there has only ever been one true red and that was an abberation.
