    Yey, my first claw!

    Is it normal for a claw to flower when its this small? Its about 10"-12" tall.

    dang! Mine are around 8"-10" and are just flowering. What genus does that belong to? How long did it take to reach that length from the flowers?

    Very nice!

    It is Proboscidea parviflora. It took about 2-3 weeks from flowering. It took a while to look like a claw, but it will speed up in growth after the first 2". I got the seeds from allegedhuman. I hope to get more than ine claw this season.

    Ooo... somehow I managed to skip over this topic. How is the plant and claw doing?
    I have read that it is recommended to cut off early flowers (or at least after they bloom) because of incidents where the fruit becomes too heavy and brings down and snaps the young plant's stem. Once the plant has grown more, letting flowers go on to fruiting won't make it too top-heavy.


    If you don't mind me asking, did you hand pollinate it yourself?
