1. Fuchsia decidua is an oddity which I saw years ago in the Sierra de Minatlan in western Jalisco. It has a few long, thick, spongy roots, not defined into potato-like tubers, but still tuberous. The thick roots are buried in moss high up on the trunks of oaks. 2. Another odd "bulb" which I encountered years ago in far western Jalisco, Mexico, on cliffs between Bara de Navidad and Autlan was Pitcairnia micheliana a bromeliad which was quite "bulbous" and had red-red flowers. This one a bulbous lithophyte, or rock dweller. ================ Hi Gang, I sure enjoy the stories and reports from this group. Now I want to visit Sierra de Minatlan and see the oak tree-hugging Fuchsia. Joe More rain today, still warm and humid. An old fashioned Crinum called 'Apostle' (not Tweleve Apostles) finished blooming. What a pretty plant.
