Please assist with identification
« on: August 17, 2021, 10:30:28 pm »

Greetings  :)

I am hoping for some plant identification. All contributions will be welcome and appreciated.

My brain is saying D. cabrerana, however, I have not previously grown it, and I have found one visual reference to suggest B. caapi (via Google lens).

If anyone knows, please do shine some identifying light, and forgive my forgetfulness. I have a new way to store all of my plant actions moving forward so, I won't likely experience this again.

Thank you all \(^_^)/

idk i guess it a caapi, it's hard to tell if the leaves are thicker/waxy, maybe it could be diplotery or somethin.

Thank you, ONandONandON. I appreciate your input. I am hopeful for a Diplo. Hopes doesn't usually change the species though, from my experience, haha.

Attaching some more pictures from this morning. We'll figure it out eventually :)

It looks like a Diplopterys of sorts when I compare it to my Diplopterys and Banisteriopsis plants.
My plants came to me already labelled and so I am relying on someone elses knowledge to of identified them correctly. Ive not personally looked up the botanical descriptions for them and there seems to be some mislabelling and confusion of certain Banisteriopsis and Diplopterys plants which are in circulation, so ultimately I am unsure.
But comparing it to the plants I have, if they are correct, it seems to look like a Diplopterys.

Attached is a photo of my Diplopterys lutea when it was young and looking lovely, and then another photo of it older and unfortunately not is as nice condition, eek

I was just on a site this morning actually, and it rather caught me by surprise. It had D cabrerana leaves, and in parenthesis, it said formerly Banisteropsis. I feel fortunate, none the less, for being on this journey.

I see the similarities for sure. We're leaning towards D. cabrerana right now. I can relate to your current picture. I've had some kind of buggies gnawing on a B caapi. It grows incredibly fast! So pretty when leaves aren't being half eaten. Well, still pretty no matter. I am sending yours positive vibes to get to feeling better!

Thank you for sharing!

Here's a photo of a couple of my Diplopterys cabrerana.
These are clones of the ones which are being circulated around the community.

Ive seen Chicsa mention somewhere that he thinks these could be mislabelled however. I think he said they looked like they might be Diplopterys longialata instead, but he's not totally sure.

As young as it is right now it looks like a few different genera/species possibly. Maybe wait it out a bit until its a lil more mature and expressing its characteristics more. I have a big Diplo to compare to as well.

Dang I'm falling behind lol everyone these days has gotten D. cab other than myself. Actually have had it three times but the first two from Wouter(probably root rot due to thick cuttings with few roots and therefore stayed wet too long) eventually gave up and the other kind member that sent cuttings last year I was unsuccessful with. One did root but gave up shortly thereafter. 

To reply to the topic at hand though...I have grown several types of caapi from seeds. The seedling being pictured does look a bit different than the ones ive grown before. My guess is it is likely D. cab but otherwise it does have a caapi look to it as well in some ways. Obviously they are related too so I guess that goes without saying really.

I have since started to attempt to germinate several new D. cab seeds. In the event that there are any successful germinations, that will certainly help to close this unknown.

I will of course, post updates :)

Thank you everyone for sharing your feedback.

Anyone else is still welcome to comment too.
