An update on suspicions about Puka noted on 15 Feb after a quick trip to Melbourne. A few sightings in the Botanic Gardens of full, mature specimens but with many big leaves singed by exposure to full sun under hotter drier conditions than a Puka would ever get in NZ. But from the steamy conditions of the tropical glasshouse, a pretty pic of Cochliostema a collector's plant not common enough to have a common name.
