Thread: Capensis "giant"?

  1. #9
    Guest
    I currently have seed of D. capensis f.Giant Alba germinating.. but the seedlings are still much too small to tell exactly how "Giant" they are [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Does anyone have pictures of a "Giant" compared to "Standard"? Just curious..

    Hi all ,

    I'm growing a couple of "giant" (or so-called forms) of D.capensis , but only one form seem to be a bit giant...

    in fact , I'm asking myself if some "giant" plants ar not only...old plants , that have been grown in good conditions.

    one must remember that in nature , D.capensis can be very big (in fact , very long , 'cause it's a stem building plant)

    the most impressive form of D.capensis that I have is the Baine's Kloof form : it builds a stem , and it looks like a small tree (have'nt blooming yet)

    er...I've also got a small (called "pigmy" or "compact") form of the plant...and this one is really small , and it stay small

    Lowrie's catalog lists a form of capensis named capensis var. minor. Maybe this is the "pygmy" or "compact" form.

    Hi CP2K

    you are right !

    that "pygmy" or "compacta" plant came from Lowries. But since that day , it seems that he have changed it's name in "var.minor"...

    did he described thoose plants ?

    The giant capensis that I have saw in Germany in 1993 had a diameter of 12 inches. I have to dig up the photos and post them some time.

    All of mine were at most half that size.
