Amphorafonia collection

Snail

A rustlepip plant that has been cultivated carefully to resemble a snail, now that takes a bit of craftsmanship!
This requires knowledge of the effects that soundwaves have on young rustlepip plants and it’s essential in the cultivation process.
But that alone is not enough to create such beauty as this “Snail” rustlepip (Amphorafonia domestica Maroís), experience build up over the years is what we see in this precious plant.
“Snail” is 23 cm in height and makes a gentle rustling sound when it’s picked up and moved about.

For sale: € 395,- (excl. packaging and shipping costs)

Bellybutton

A rustlepipplant with remarkable looks. One of the interesting features is an inward curved hollow with sharp thorns. Obviously, for the look that it gives this plant I named it ‘Bellybutton’.
All my cultivated rustlepips are grown to match a pre-sketched image. To breed a plant in this way, requires a lot of skill and years of experience. Although I am still learning and will continue to learn, I can call myself a professional grower of rustlepips.

Hight of this plant: 39 cm

For sale at € 395,- (packaging and shipping costs not included)

Gap

Rustlepip with a gap in its body. Body is the denomination used for rustlepips in general. Altering the music that is played during the growth of the rustlepip, creates bizarre and wonderful shaped plants.  It takes quite some knowledge however, to grow plants that have a gap in their body. Height 35 cm

Twin

Twin is a special Rustlepip plant that has once belonged to Agatha Maroís (*1838- | 1919), she was the first to give this plantspecies it’s scientific description, therefore the Latin name: Amphorafonia domestica Maroís.
Twin has been in the possession of Agatha Maroís, one assumes she has either grown Twin herself which gives the plant an age about 150 years, but it might also have been given to her by a local native woman from Canada which would suggest that Twin is much older.
Twin has been added to my collection a few years ago.

 Height: 24 cm
