    Proboscidea and Ibicella

    I will be stuck at home for the next couple of months so I bought some seeds to germinate and grow. They arrived today.

    They both smell horrible. Be careful not to touch them when they get more mature, the glue/slime they make is hard to remove...

    The seeds were sown on 27th June. I noticed that 3 days later, one of the Proboscidea seeds turned yellow. Its seed coat was cut with a scalpel while with the rest, I used my finger nails after realising the covering was soft enough.



    Interestingly, it is the first to germinate last night!

    cool! Hopefully you'll have some roridula sprouts soon too!

    Maybe the yellowing was the result of chloroplast development?

    Great shots, Cindy! You sowed on top of the soil? ...Interesting.

    Good luck with them!
