Descripción

This specimen put on a spectacular show of flowers this year. The bagging activity in one of the pictures is to do with some pollination experiments that were taking place.

Checking out the seed capsules, and the new seasons growth on this specimen. Couldn't discern for sure any flower buds, but definitely leaf buds in progress.

Definitely a Crimson Rata. This specimen sparked a bit of discussion and investigation trying to figure out if a Crimson or a Scarlett Rata. The deciding factor was whether it would flower in April or September - and it's definitely September.

See observation for discussion on this from back in March2020.

Found this rather feisty young man on me while cleaning out the front gardens. Must have dropped onto me somehow. He objected somewhat to being plucked off my arm but it had to be done quick. They run up your sleeve real-fast!
I didn't quite get a good enough grasp on this one initially to stop him getting his jaws around my finger tho' - the pressure was getting up there shall we say. So I let him bite on a stick for a bit while I figured out a better place to put him!

Have been watching these fruit fill out since they were flowering back in Nov2019, and now the new flowers are out?! Odd, pretty, but odd. Fruit are NOT ready for (ahem) "research purposes" in case you are thinking about it....

This specimen still holding onto its fruit that were setting on my last observation. But now the "fried egg" flowers are out. Pretty, and no wonder it's called the Fried Egg plant!

Found this specimen fruiting away like crazy under the Rata Moheau canopy and behind a big Holly plant. The thorns on that plant bigger than the fruit - very gnarly.

Updated observation on this specimen - starting to zero in on it being a Scarlett Rata, first pic shows developing flower buds, and with flowering in April for the Scarlett Rata that seems to be on track. Will post an update in April.

Return visit for March2020 to check out the fruiting progress. I've never noticed they go a kind of orangeycolour before.

The area was pretty dark when I got there, but the cluster I found was lit-up by the sun reflecting off some nearby windows. Had to adjust the camera a bit to get the saturation/colouring as close as it was in reality. Got pretty close I think.

I'm having trouble with id'ing this myrtle - anyone have any ideas? The oddest characteristic is the long flower stems with no apparent leaf formation - unless another characteristic is all the leaves fall off each flower-stem. Haven't seen it flower yet, but clearly flowers like a fury.

Found this green bug-eyed fly on our lime tree.

Rather distinctive to say the least, and certainly haven't seen anything like this before. Any assist appreciated.

Checked in on this specimen located in the gardens behind the AKLUni Fale and BizSchool. Looking pretty good given the hot weather and semi-drought.
No sign of anything having a crack at this specimen either (notably no sign of myrtle rust). Up to about 1.8m+ in height now.

Checking in on this specimen @StephenThorpe first posted on in 2017.

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9261868.
Budding up nicely at the moment, recent obs from SthAfrica have theirs flowering currently (20Jan) so quite likely these ones will "pop" open soon - in the next week or so my current guess.
The specimen isn't looking that flash, but currently surviving. Just over 2m tall, and nothing nasty obviously on it (eg no discernable trace of myrtle rust)
Located in the small (and rather quirky/interesting) garden behind the AKLUni Fale and AKLBizSchool.

i really don't know where to begin with this species. Looks vaguely like a large Pukanui (Meryta Sinclarii), but isn't. Being near a nursery I'm presuming it's been put there on purpose.

Vaguely fig-like in structure and REALLY tall - 10m off ground level perhaps.

Crazy looking fig, could only be planted here on purpose given it's positioning and size I reckon. Location is "public" if the gate is open.
I took a few of the fruits home (from off the ground), a bit squishy, a bit of research suggested they were edible - not YET they're not. Too hard, but recognisably fig-like inside.

Looks like this specimen has found it's way more or less by itself - nothing obvious to suggest it was planted to go with something to help as a trellis, so I'm not marking this one "captive" as yet. Tho' being in the grounds of an old nursery I might find it has been intetionally planted.

I thought the flowering might start a bit earlier this year, and this morning's check proved that out on this specimen. From this time there's typically only 2 weeks of flowering to see, but there's a tremendous amount of flower buds this year so it might extend out a bit longer through to the "normal" end of November. The helpful staff in the BioBldg were grateful for having it pointed out so they can see it from their windows, plus they took me upstairs to get a "top" view. No flowers on the very top, flower buds appearing only from about the 75% height mark, and on (probably) last year's leaf growth.

Moehau #1 of 7.
This one flowered a bit last year and is certainly flowering more vigourously this year. It's NorthEast aspect is clear, but the North well over-shadowed. Lesser flowering than the specimens in the full-sun, but a good set nonetheless.

Moehau #2 of 7.
In the deepest cover with the least flowering population this year. Had to hunt around to find some on the south side, with only slim-pickings, and not as fully developed as on the other specimens. Otherwise healthy enough.

Moehau #4 of 7.
Definitely a correlation between shading out one of these trees and the amount of flowering. This one readying for a good blast of flowers later, but with that overshadow on the north-facing side it's noticeably lesser than #5-#6-#7. Strong flowering on the southern sides which isn't typical. The one at Manurewa Botanic gardens is totally overshadowed on the North, but flowers on the south side - not profusely, but certainly populated.
This specimen could do without the weedy but now well established Coprosma taking over the Moehau's north-face.

Moehau #5 or 7 (between the palms).
This specimen also readying for some great flowering in a few weeks time (mid-Nov) onwards. Characteristic of these 7 is the very round habit when not pruned - all 7 remind of giant green butter balls. Quite different to the 30m+ gangling matured giants in the far-north.

Moehau #6 of 7.
This specimen also ready for a great flowering show this year. On these specimens, there are great opportunities to get right up close to the blooms as the lack of any pruning has the masses of flowers appearing close to the ground.

This younger specimen has leafed up well for this year, but no flower buds that I could discern. Not easy to get a good view to the north-faces the way its planted. But the gardens at AKLUni Tamaki campus are still there at least, as-is this tree.

Took the "big" camera back to the AKLUni Biology Bldg specimen to get a good zoom in on the flower buds nearer the ground, and to check the canopy to see if any way up there. That tree is getting taller every year. If anyone has a mate that works in/around the BioDept that has a view over the top of that tree, can you let me know how I might contact them? Pretty much on track for first flowering from the 15Nov, the big show probably from about the 22Nov, with it likely being all over by the 29Nov.

As for the specimen at AKLUniversity, this specimen at Fernglen is set for a good show. Not quite as profuse as the AKLuni specimen - this ones budding not as prolific towards the top. But plenty elsewhere on the SouthEast to NorthWest aspects.

In comparison to the sequence of flowering I did in 2014 (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/20542896) they are pretty much on-track for a flowering from about 15Nov with full blast at about 25Nov.

I thought this year (2019) was going to be the first flowering year for this specimen, but maybe not (still possible, but not a mass flowering event).
