    Woah thats alot, dustin!

    I've noticed that once it flowers, the whole flower comes off after its been pollinated. It's not even seperate petals, its just one fat flower. After it falls off it leaves the stigma ? Am I correct or did something rip the flower off?

    That's correct, Halt. The flower does have petals, but they are all fused together. A little after pollination the entire thing falls off. See the post I made on 6/19/09 on this thread. I have pictures.




    EDIT: I got a deformed flower a couple of days a go for the first time since growing Proboscidea. I pollinated it... maybe something special will pop up.


    Regular flower for comparison:




    Here is the deformed flower. Note the extra petals:

    Note the double yellow nectar trail:

    Here is my Devil Claws seedlings:

    What species of Devil Claws are these? I have never seen leaves like that before until they sprouted.

    Those don't look like Devil's Claws.

    Yeah, those look more like oak sprouts or something. Definitely not devil's claw.

    Does the Devil Claws have the purple underside? Those have the purple underside on the leaves.

    No. That's definitely not devil's claw. The leaf shape is all wrong, and so is the stem. The whole stem should be covered in fine sticky hairs.
