    Whoa! Those look like little nuclear explosions just starting to happen (without the horror part!) Amazing!

    Here are some of my pycnoblasta growing outdoors in full sun. The plants are growing in a mix that contains lots of perlite. All the plants grew over the summer without any signs of dormancy. [img]http://home.**********.com/cp2k/images/Michael's%20CP%20026.jpg[/img]

    CP2K, the leaves on those plants are incredibly red. Even the plants I have seen growing in the wild in WA did not have leaves anywhere near as red as those. That looks like a huge pot you are growing them in. How large is it? I'm thinking that you wouldn't be able to fit many of them in a small yard.

    Sean,

    Possibly a result of different population variables? Here's what mine looks (looked) like:

    Hi Sean,
    Pretty much all my pygmies are red during the winter with full sun. During the summer, I give them almost 70% shade and the coloration is much like your plant. I grow most of my pygmies in white pots that are 6-12in deep. The pycnoblasta is in an 8in deep pot. I can fit quite a few of these pots on a 5ft x8ft bench.
