    A bit of an update with these two - the plant at bottom left is opening its second flower with another one on the way, but that should be the last one for it this season.





    The plant at right is opening its third and last flower while two seed capsules to the right of it ripen off - should know in a day or two if there is any seed in the ripest one.


    A closer look at the top of this opening flower, just a few hours away from it being fully open.





    A look at the underneath side of this same flower.

    Thanks Corky,

    An unfurling leaf rolls out its tip in a sideways corkscrew spiral.

    A very tiny P. heterophylla seedling peeks out from a surrounding landscape of coarse sand.



    This seedling is just over a week old.

    The two bulbs each produced 3 flowers apiece this year and i pollinated all 6 flowers, collected seed from 4 of the flowers, but was only able to germinate about a dozen or so seeds from just one of those seed capsules.

    So i snapped pics last night, then fed the seedlings, so hopefully in a few weeks they will have grown some more.

    I just saw this. These are really neat plants.

    I have had some success with P. medusina, perhaps it is time for me to try P. heterophylla.


    Nice job!

    Thanks Corky and Lil Stinkpot.

    These two have now gone into their dormant habit.



    But the leaf pullings i took last year, from the two plants shown above, have mostly reawakened from their blissful mexi-ping slumber.
