That is beautiful dvg!
An unfurling leaf rolls out its tip in a sideways corkscrew spiral.
A very tiny P. heterophylla seedling peeks out from a surrounding landscape of coarse sand.
This seedling is just over a week old.
The two bulbs each produced 3 flowers apiece this year and i pollinated all 6 flowers, collected seed from 4 of the flowers, but was only able to germinate about a dozen or so seeds from just one of those seed capsules.
So i snapped pics last night, then fed the seedlings, so hopefully in a few weeks they will have grown some more.
and you have seeds germinating,i missed the update but a dozen seeds to grow is pretty good i think
I just saw this. These are really neat plants.
I have had some success with P. medusina, perhaps it is time for me to try P. heterophylla.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
MyGrowlist RIP, sweet Dory
Thanks Corky and Lil Stinkpot.
These two have now gone into their dormant habit.
But the leaf pullings i took last year, from the two plants shown above, have mostly reawakened from their blissful mexi-ping slumber.
magnificent result of culture,continuous on other species.
What soil mix do you use for all of your Mexican pings?
