I had to hike some 2 miles out of the woods with some mighty chunks of tuffa rock. *As it turns out, I only needed a fraction of what I brought out.
The plant in the photo was a hibernacula in the fridge 3 weeks ago. *The growth rate is amazing in this species, and the flowering seems prolific. *This plant is actually from one of the larger gemmae associated with the hibernacula. *The main plant has 3 scapes up and flowering and 2 more visable in the center!
The gemmae was planted in a bit of marl sand set into the pores of the tuffa rock, and the whole placed in good light in a small dish of rain water.The tuffa wicks the water to the roots, and viola! there is a mini ecosystem.
