    That's why that backyard bog keeps getting bigger each year.

    Thanks . . .

    Remember though that too much nitrogen will kill those creepy plants . . .

    Very nice Hamata seedlings. How quickly do Hamata seeds germinate for you?

    Thanks, though there was an outside possibility that the plants were N. tentaculata in error back in 2009; but that's definitely not the case.

    The seedlings all received 1/4 strength 30:10:10 orchid fertilizer shortly after germination (along with the adult plants) and biweekly for most of last year and this Spring.

    I had hoped to get at least one on the NASC auction but didn't think anything at the time was capable of being safely shipped. Maybe next year . . .
