    wooo I want to join the party!

    I am amazed that you have D. zigzagia grow and flower in a little over a year.. I have D. zigzagia from Allen that are going on their 4th year and the plants are just now easy to see much less close to flowering! Makes me wonder if you are growing D. zigzagia..or if I am for that matter!! Lol

    Here is my contribution to patience and perserverance. This is a pot of D. erythrorhiza that was sown in March of 2004. Watered once and then given a hot dry Summer. In the Fall treated with smoke water and allowed to be watered normally. Some seed have germinated every Winter since then and I have a few that are now a couple cm across but here it is almost 5 years later and there are 4 seeds that germinated this Winter in the pot. Sorry no size reference other than the sand grains and if you look close one seed which is a couple mm in diameter.


    Here are a couple other photos just for fun.

    D. lowriei Ravensthorpe just about blooming size

    Tony, my zigzagia plants from seed match those plants Travis sent me with decent sized tubers, had both flowering at the same time and they were identical so unless we both have the wrong plant.....as far as both of know we have the real deal...my seeds originate from Allen and im assuming the seeds that Travis had placed in TC and the tubers he has are from Allen aswell........

    Maybe D. zigzagia just doesn't like me ;<

    Did they make rosettes at all I have D. salina growing right next to them and they look kinda the same so maybe I got something mixed up.

    I will take some pics next time the sun shines.

    yep they made rosettes first......some still havent left the rosette stage even at a year old....think about 1/3 to 1/2 of the seedlings havent gone skyward yet......the only way i dont have zigzagia is if there was a screw up on Allens end as its the only non-rosette tuberous i ordered other than gigantea....

    ooo Thanks for the pics! They kinda look like that one rosetted plant in the first picture so maybe all is good.

    could just be some slow starters......from what i remember yours look similar to what mine did but my camera at that time did not like focusing on things that small.....

    BTW if yours does something like this....a "second rosette stage" please post pictures.......i had a few plants do it, Travis had a few plants do it but other than with our plants we havent come across it happening to anyone else

    To confirm, yes my tubers came from Allen. They were put into TC and the ones I have came out of some of the resulting flasks. I am almost 100% these are the real thing as there are not many yellow flowered tuberous and they key out pretty easy.

    As soon as I get some time I'll get the camera out and pop a few shots. Gets some bloom photos as well.
