    Nice! good work I had some grow to be about 5" tall in a little forest of scorpiodes... Once they got so tall and ugly I uprooted them all cut the bottom off leaving 1.5 or os inches on them, put the tops back in the media and kept it REALLY wet for a while... probably 90% of those are still growing today and probably back up to 3" or so now. neat little plants Come to think of it... Mine are covered in gemmae right now heh.

    I think I'll try that approach, Andrew. I read that one can do that with B. liniflora as well.

    Barry Rice says he just folds them over gently in a "S" curve and buries extra stem. Less chance of the plant dying that way.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I bought 2 scorps last year. Both are making gemmae.

    My eyes are getting shot, I'm farsighted (I'm 51). I use a head mounted magnifier, a toothpick, a safety pin (to help release the gemmae) and a big, tallish white bowl.

    Yes it can. I've done it twice back when I had the plant
