Rumble Among the Jungle, Match 4.3

The outcomes for matches 3.13 and 3.14:

The outcome of match 3.13 was pretty easy to call in advance: Haworthia spp. built a commanding lead over Adenium obesum and then held on to it, eventually winning 66 to 46.

Match 3.14, on the other hand, was ridiculously close through the whole voting period, and the lead flipped back and forth between Cycas revoluta and the self-heading Philodendrons ('Autumn,' 'Prince of Orange,' 'Moonlight') several times. At the buzzer, the Philodendrons had a three-vote lead, 58-55, so they will advance to the fourth round. Sorry, cycad fans.

Haworthia spp. and the self-heading Philodendrons will square off in match 4.7. Voting begins on 29 October.

And now, the match of the day.

Match 4.3
Phalaenopsis and Doritaenopsis cvv. (moth orchid) vs. Hoya carnosa cvv. (wax plant)

(All unidentified Phalaenopsis cvv.)

Clockwise from top left: Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Princess,' 'Chelsea,' all-green revert of 'Krimson Princess,' 'Krimson Queen.'
