    I've since lost the L.carnosa but the L.sinuosa has 4 or 5 new growths and just as many new leaves. The seedlings have all put on some decent size and need to be repotted and moved. There's not a whole lot to report on the others. They grow very slowly for me in the HL conditions they're grown in. They really need LL conditions to be at their best. As for the Hydnophytum, I got it at that size and have no real idea of it's age.

    Agree!

    How large were the seeds you planted to get babies that big so fast?

    The seeds literally germinate over night. Plant the seeds......BOOM......next day, plants. They're pretty incredible.

    It was my fault I lost the plant. I let it dry out without realizing.

    Something to keep in mind with many of the antplants like Hydnophytum & Myrmecodia is that the seeds have a very short shelf life. The gent at the botanical garden who gave me a couple fresh (still in the fruit) seeds cautioned me to plant the seeds as soon as possible as their viability drops off rapidly over time. On the plus side, fresh seed germinates rapidly.

    Wow, this Hyndophytum formicarum is amazing looking! Where do you get the seeds from?

    You really kind of need to know someone with a fruiting plant. As mentioned, the seed loses viability very rapidly. Once the fruit is harvested, the seed should be sown within days.
