    Stylidium semipartitum - tropical species

    I was intrigued by the temperate species when I saw them in Western Australia a few years ago and tried growing them. However, the tropical heat sent them straight into summer dormancy...they never woke up and rotted away.

    So I got myself some seeds of the tropical species. The first germinated for me last December but the plants are at the moment, no bigger than 2/10". This is the second which germinated for me and I am very excited to share the pics of the seedlings! There are actually dew drops on the leaves! And this is a very very fast grower (compared to the other species). LOL

    The seeds were sown on 28 April and they germinated on 9 May.


    There are two seedlings in the following pic. No glandular trichomes was observable on the 1st leaves.


    A couple of days ago, I decided to transplant them into little individual containers.


    As of today, glandular trichomes are observable on the 2nd and 3rd leaves. Each seedling is about 4/10" across.

    I certainly hope that they do well enough to flower for me.

    Wow nice job !!

    I grow stylidium petiolare, one of my favorites cps !

    I have to see them in nature someday. Here in canada in the wild we have pinguiculas utricularias sarra and of course droseras.

    I find that my stylidium gros better and much faster in 70%+ humidity.
