    I just went through this a couple weeks ago. In a nutshell, you want to hold the pot upside down, over a larger container to catch the gemmae. With a toothpick, you coax the gemmae out of the crown.

    The same approach would apply to the Captain! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    You don't really think you'll get too many gemmae out of him doing that do you?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Gemmae? He may not get gemmae, but the exercise might be fun - at least for Matt. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    haha
    I dun think alan could ever get gemmae.. and I'm still mad at him for killing my madagascarensis... that thing was doing well, 4 inches tall and stuff until he forgot to water it. (he was supposed to take care of it)... UPDATE: I got the gemmae off the top, and planted it on... lfs over peat and perlite...
