What is your favourite rare plant?


I think mine right now is the Eriocaulon...Absolutely stunning. I know that they originate from Australia, but I had heard someone mention that they are native to other areas of the world?

Bucephalandra are some of my favorites at the moment.

Unfortunately, they're nearly all (not all - just nearly all) collected illegally and in irresponsible ways, so I am reluctant to jump on board that ship just yet.

I'm loving some of the Cryptocoryne species right now! I'm also digging the tiny A. nana petite, just got two & I'm excited to see how they grow!

I guess it's rare, but I'm still going with lagenhandra and/or Madagascar lace plant

Not sure how rare it is in the US but, up here in Canada, red tiger lotus seems pretty hard to come by.

I absolutely love this plant.

Ammannia latifolia, for sure. It's absolutely stunning in person!

Must say, Ozelot Swords might not be too difficult to get, but they are some of my favorites. As well as Indian Red Swords, Both pretty cool plants
