Origin of the plant in the photos: Sunnyvale Nursery
This plant, purchased nameless, has been identified by Dr. Alistair Hay.
It originates in Sarawak.
|The variegation of the leaves is absolutely stunning. The leaves are dry to touch, resembling A.cuprea or A.guttata imperialis.|
|The two leaves on the left belong to the same plant and show the interesting effect of turning green when backlighted...|
|The plant has bloomed in the second week of August, 1998.|
|Here's the interior of the inflorescence.|
|Another interesting feature: the same plant has both peltate and non-peltate leaves!|
