    Worm Plants? Oh yes!

    No not worm infested but wormy looking plants!

    Avonia albissima


    Detail of the transparent blooming "head"?



    Avonia papayracea ssp. namaensis. Seems to just be getting started for the year.


    Info on these weirdos seems scarce, appears to me that the wormy vegetation is deciduous from the buried caudex.

    I didn't grow them from seed, I may be old but not that old!
    I just got them the other day. The little caudex roots are about dime sized not sure how old they might be but I hear they are extremely slow to gain flowering size. The A. albissima already flowered/is flowering so those arms will eventually drop off and new worms will come up. Today the arms are all up and it looks sort of like the Hydra creatures we looked at in biology class under the microscope! The colors will be based on how much light it gets. In low light they are green, high light gives it the red/pink & white papery scales colors.

    Anyone else growing these? Seedjar?
