    Scarlet Belle seeds

    Anybody ever get viable seed from a Scarlet Belle? I played around with pollination of my Scarlet Belle and now have about 300 seeds, no other CPs flowered, so self-pollinated and no mixes. Just wondering what these seeds might produce and if anyone would like to trade something on my wish list for some of these seeds.

    Wish list:

    S. Luek alb top
    S. typical minor
    S. Purpurea venosa
    cephalotus plant or seed


    This is the one that flowered, it used to be huge before division this year

    Those plants are gorgeous. How old is the Scarlet Belle that flowered?

    Thank you, it is my favorite. I have had it about 7 years, my first CP actually, started out as a little baby. It has flowered for the past 3 years, even after my poor attempt at dividing it this year. I would like to divide it again and give some away, but it is such a tight root ball I am afraid of killing it. The attempt I made at the beginning of this year I was only able to separate the one piece (bottom picture). If some of you pros out there could give me some tips on how to safely divide such a tight clump without destroying the whole plant, I am all ears! I am redoing that old bog it is in next spring, so need to do something with it then and would love to share some divisions of it.

    I saw some YouTube videos about dividing potted plants, they make it look easy.

    I did have one in there, a new little baby one, but [I]sombody[I] threw the ball for the dog and, well, the dog managed to miss everything BUT the little Cobra Nest (picked it up with the ball I am told). Of course, I was not home at the time...

    Anyway, would love to have another one (the ball is now hidden and only I know where it is, hee, hee). PM or email me with details.
