    gemmae rising

    all the gemmae that have germinated , are now raising up and away from the soil and some are drying off , and im loosing quite a few , should i have planted them or is this normal, i just laid them on the surface.
    is there a fix for this or am I going to loose them all ?

    Check for gnats or see if you used good clean soil mix.

    Do you use the tray method? I would recommend using the tray method for the ones that are rising to keep them moist.

    On top of the soil is where they should be placed.
    You sure they get enough light? Try to post a photo.

    Hi Marius,

    I had no idea that it was you behind droseragemmae.com! I purchased a whole bunch of gemmae from you this year!

    Too bad you were all out of citrina. I'd love to get some from you at some point.

    One website says to push the pointed end in to the substrate. Yeah, good luck finding the pointed end on the tiny flake gemmae like Lake Badgerup.

    If the radicle isn't penetrating into the substrate I sometimes give it a helping hand with a fine pair of tweezers.

    Keeping most species moist and humid helps survival greatly until the roots get established. Either keep the water level at least 2/3rds the way to the surface of the medium or cover the pots or both.

    Which website?
    Actually the pointed end of gemmea will be oposite to the end where the root will form, on many species...so ,depending on the specie, you may not do them any favors by placing them with the pointed end in the soil.
    Better yet...try to find the pointed end of microscapa gemmae.

    Brokken, i hope they grow well for you so far. Citrina plants didn't make many gemmae this year...at least was the first to flower. The flower is nice but the plant is ugly!
    Best regards,
