    Talking Cutting Flowering, my first

    Last August I received two upper cuttings from a female N. Mata Hari (splendiana x ventricosa). Over the last two months they have slowly been putting out new leaves and tiny roots. Because their roots are still tiny I have left them in their rooting pot and not potted them up seperatly in a more "normal and drier" media.

    Well I guess nature couldn't wait. One of the girls is now putting out a flower spike.

    Hmmm....if my last remaining cutting of this survives, at least I know it's female now...very cool.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
