Another super rarity I found on the emerald lake is Eriocaulon sp. Japan and I am not sure if this is the same as what is being called Eriocaulon amanoanum. Can anyone confirm or deny the validity of Amano having his name on one of the most spectacular Erios evar?

If anyone has this plant please let me know so I can sign over my bank account and firstborn ASAP.

Here is the picture from emerald lake

Here are some pictures from a fellow gardener who happens to work at ADA Japan
Here it is at a young stage and the pictures after that follow the plant's development.

A little while later

This plant just keeps going


This plant is unstoppable

Confirmed.

I do but It's not about the money :) If I propagate it successfully it will be for sale eventually.

Hey Mr.
Can you tell me a little about amanoanum and where you succeeded in obtaining this plant?

I have a propagule from the above mother plant coming my way. I will report back when it arrives, hopefully in good shape. I hope to get some Erio sp. Japan for comparison because I do not believe these are the same. The leaf size and shape seem pretty different but I'll grow them side by side to see for sure.

Well I got my Eriocaulon amanoanum yesterday and it is hands down the most beautiful Eriocaulon I have ever seen, perhaps the most beautiful plant. Let's hope it settles in well and grows at a decent pace.

Hey there aCoralite

Any updates?

I'd love to hear where you obtained your Eriocaulon amanoanum. I've been looking for this for some time, but my time is limited so i haven't gotten any anywhere. #-o

Any help would be appreciated!

Japan and Amanoanum are not the same plants, yes they are both from Japan but different localities.

The plant that Coralite received looks like the Japan specie that I was selling today not an Amanoanum.

I looked this species up on IPNI, and it looks like it was described in 1956. Described too long ago it looks like(to be named after our hero).
Oh I have no doubts that there such a plant named Eriocaulon Amanoanum "T. Koyama" because I do have it :), but there are also 4 other Erios to my knowledge that are called Japan, 2 of which I have currently (1 of the 2 went up for sale yesterday).

I received my plant from the individual who popularized E. amanoanum and my plant looks very different from the Erio sp. Japan that you were selling, Rasheed. With a diameter of about 5" and leaves that are about 1/4" wide and flat, it is similar but easy to differentiate from the 5 or so Erio "japan". Furthermore, the plant I received has a stem which is already 3" tall, as far as I know most of the other Erio "japans" do not grow upwards to the same degree as the true Amanoanum.

Erio. Amanoanum is very rare and a protected species in Japan and unless your plant came from Honk Kong, it is highly unlikely that you received E. amanoanum as this species is readily confused with Erio "Japan". You were probably sent a large Erio "Japan" which is why you think that my Amanoanum looks like it. If you had a the true Amanoanum there is no way you would confuse the two.

If you say so I believe you.

hahaha! You forget who you are talking to, don't forget I can school you in this area my friend.

You don't need to know where and how I came to own this sp, lets just leave it at that. Just know that I've added this to my collection long before you 'discovered' it :)

I thought somebody said that it was named after Takashi Amano, but it apparently isn't. That was my point.
