    Drosophyllum rising...

    After seeing some of the success that others here on this forum have had with this species, i decided to try this one for myself finally.

    Here's one of the seeds that just sprouted.

    Congrats!! Hope it does well for you.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Thanks!

    I have six of these seedlings already transplanted into their own little pots, with more germinating each day.

    Here's an update on that previous seedling.

    Another update on these very tiny plants.

    The largest one was hand fed three springtails today...hopefully it doesn't get indigestion from this appetizer.



    It's interesting how these seedlings tend to escape from their seeds, almost in a Harry Houdini-like fashion.

    They send down their radical root and then with their two cotyledon leaves still 'handcuffed' inside the seed, they work on freeing their true leaves.



    It almost looks like a green alien trying to extricate its octipus-like tentacle while its arms are still caught in its space pod...obviously a very adept contortionist with this maneuver.



    Here is the second largest seedling, with its arms still caught in the pod.



    Once those arms are free, you bugs better beware, cuz it'll only have eyes for you...
