    D. capensis Seed o_0

    Well, I just got back from Florida last night, and discovered that my capensis stalk was leaking seed onto my counter, i picked off the stalk and deposited the seeds from each flower into a tray. Damn.



    Not to mention my other capensis is sending up a flower stalk. AND the capensis that produced this seed is sending up another one.

    Not to mention all the other seed that fell in other pots and should start germinating in a few weeks

    Looks like your flowers were pretty fertile, or big...The capensis shooting up my next flower stalk is a bit larger.

    I just collected the seed before it spread all over the place, that's why there are that much

    Gotta laugh becaus between U. subulata and D. capensis, it's like a competition as to which species will invade the most pots.

    Subulata I think is more weedy since the stalons can be hard t find,
    I grow much less invasive urtics so I am guesing on that subulata is very weedy more so than capensis.
