Goodness. It's been so long since I did a transmitted light post that I don't even remember how I'm supposed to do them.
Actually no, that's not true. It's only been like five months. But it'd been nine months before that. I'm definitely a little rusty.
(The previous transmitted light posts can be found here.)
Philodendron [erubescens?] 'Golden Emerald.' I don't know what the deal is with this one; it never seems to photograph as bright and saturated as it actually is. It's really much prettier than this in person.
Brassolaeliocattleya Helen Brown. Probably by now it's not Brassolaeliocattleya anymore, but who has time to keep track of these things.
Iris ensata variegata. I have no memory of seeing a variegated Iris of any kind, anywhere. I mean, I know they exist; it's just that this photo is the only evidence I have that I've ever seen one. I didn't even take a photo of the whole plant, so there's no context for this picture. It's a weird feeling.
Salvia elegans. On Sunday, I semi-accidentally wound up looking at some of the pictures of the Salvia elegans we planted in the yard a couple years ago, when it was huge and in full bloom, and: I'm afraid we're just going to have to do that again. Even though I no longer seem to be capable of overwintering them. (Probably the basement is too warm now, what with all the lights.)
Tradescantia zebrina. I didn't actually intend for this to wind up next to the Callisia, but it's an interesting comparison, since they have a nearly identical growth habit.
Caladium NOID. Not one of my best Caladium pictures, but with Caladiums, even a bad picture is still okay.
Quercus sp., autumn.
Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar.'
