    I've been growing N. mira for less than a year, so I know there are a lot of you out there who have had more experience with this plant.

    The plant in question is flowering, even though it is in the rosette stage and no more than a foot across. Is this unusual? I cannot find any reference material on the natural history of N. mira, so I am assuming that it should enter a "vining" stage when it is more mature.

    Thanks,
    KPG

    Not unusual at all! I have an N. mira and the first few months I had it, it flowered being about 6 inches across. It now flowers regularly every season.

    Thank you, Dustin. I appreciate the info. I thought it might possibly be some sort of stress reaction. Now I know it will be safe to pollinate some flowers and hope for seed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks again,

    HECK no! I've been concentrating the stuff, getting it in powder form and selling it on the street as "Buzz." Want a try? C'mon, the first taste is free. *nudge nudge* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] (This's been an ongoing joke between my brothers and myself.)

    Listen, Mr. Salad fingers...There will be no pushing of nep-juice (or rusty spoons) on this forum! Is that quite understood? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
