    Unhappy

    Is this normal? I'm employed at a commercial greenhouse, and my boss has allowed me to cultivate some of my plants there...I started 6 Mimosa from seed, they're probably about 3 or 4 months old. I was hoping they'd develop some seed of their own so I could insure another generation, but it looks sort of grim. Can anyone offer me some advice on getting these plants to set seed?

    Thanks,
    Nile

    My plants also bloomed (very pretty) and the flowers occasionally produced small seed pods. I suppose if you actively pollinated the flowers you should end up with seeds pretty easily.
    Good luck,
    Peter

    Mine are doing that to this summer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    The flowers pop up, then die within 2 days, all I suggest is to pollinate them quick and see what happens.
    Ive gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, keep me here.

    A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
