    Pygmy flowers

    After an increase in photo period, the pygmies decided to stop making gemmae and start putting up flowers.

    D. paleacea ssp. paleacea




    These flowers last from "sunrise" till "sunset".

    D. pulchella "Pink flower"



    Unfortunately, these flowers only last a few hours.

    Yeah, that really is a tradgey. While attending secret meetings across campus on Friday I was able stop in to my apartment while one of my pygmies was in flower. I love how small and petite they are.



    Thanks for sharing. Hope to see some more pictures of some of your other plants real soon!

    xvart.

    edit: I didn't realize how fuzzy it was zoomed in that close. I can't compare to your photography!

    Ben, those plants are really healthy looking.
    Keep up the good growing

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Thanks guys.

    xvart, what species is that? Those lil gumdrop stigmas in the flower are pretty neat. The only reason my pics are clear so close up is because they have a pretty good macro function. Heh I guess it takes some practice though...

    For some reason, though, my D. scorpioides won't flower, despite the fact that it's mature.
