    Roridula rising...

    I've had six of these Roridula gorgonias seedlings germinate so far.

    Here's a couple of pics of two of them.



    They are all at about the same stage, with none of them quite shedding their seed coats yet.



    Once i notice that they have germinated in their communal group pots, i carefully transplant them into their very own pots, in an effort to try and avoid further root disturbance later.

    What Mass said, and if there's a "jealous" emoticon that too.

    Very cool! Do these CPs survive okay without their symbiotic plant bugs? Do they have to be fertilized?

    Yes Natalie, these plants can survive quite well without their symbiotic bugs; its the bugs that don't survive without the plants.

    And these plants don't have to be fertilized...i've read that they don't do well after being fed with a foliar spray, but maybe it wasn't done with the right formulation and in the correct concentration.

    One grower in Canada grows them very easily in his basement under lights and also in a window with a south-westerly exposure.
