It looks like David Bache, and I do believe that the plant is the huge
Cyrtosperma johnstonii that USED to be in a pot in the fishpond just inside
the doors to the Rare Plant house at Fairchild, right Susan??

Thanks for the Photo of the A. paeoniifolius at the 2004 show too!

It's my husband Harry, and you're right, it was taken at Fairchild. What is there now??I know I've seen a photo of you at the same spot, maybe I even took it! But must have been on film...SusanPS. I found some better photos of the A. paeoniifolius (With Tricia, Reggie, and Albert). If anyone wants to see them, email me off list and I'll send them to you.susan

That certainly was a very fine glasshouse specimen, but it was completely dwarfed by one at Bogor Botanic Garden growing in a small pond which was, as I observed there early one morning some years ago, used as a latrine by people on their way to work!! The same pond, if I remember correctly, where the until recently only known Lasia concinna plant had survived on that wholesome diet :-)
