    Jeff, that's an interesting question about the plantlets from this species.

    Here are some P. heterophylla plantlets from leaf pullings taken Oct. 1 of last month.



    You'll notice that there are a variety of plantlet sizes, and i'm curious as to how the smaller ones will continue to grow, or if they will cease growth at a smaller size, only to make small dormant bulbs.

    If that is the case, the smaller ones may prove to be harder to coax through their resting phase and into their next active cycle.



    In the meantime though, i've been making sure these plantlets are well fed, in the hopes of encouraging as much growth as possible for this current growth cycle.

    These plants are just about to go into dormancy.

    They've discontinued all new growth, and their watering has been cut right back.

    Some of the gravel was moved away from the base of the plants to better show the bulbs that these plants retreat back into during their dormancy period.

    Very cool dvg. About how long were these plants in their growing season?

    Here's an update on these P. heterophylla leaf pullings.

    The leaves were pulled on Oct. 1, and only two months later, these plantlets are growing quite quickly on their own roots.



    Some of the larger clumps of these are already putting out the mature summer-type leaves, with the smaller plantlets getting ready to start theirs as well.



    It's going to be interesting to see how large of a bulb these plants will be able to produce before they go dormant, but in the meantime they are being heavily fed and are also being kept on the damp and humid side.
