    N. mirabilis flowering

    Haven't been paying much attention to my LL terrarium as I should lately. Was surprised to find this in there today:

    Growspace is just a 55 gallon terrarium, with a custom hood (including a fan). Pots are on raised egg crate, with a reservoir beneath, and a fogger that runs on a timer. Getting rather crowded in there, but the head and humidity are intense.

    As to introducing her to any boys, I donno yet. Kinda took me by surprise.

    Was about to ask whether or not it was female since I couldn't quite tell from the angle...congrats! My SG mirabilis are still a fair ways from that stage, though I was hoping some of my gracilis would have hit that point by now. Don't know if you've ever seen the hybrid 'Mark Lang', but I've got x mixta pollen if it were of interest to remake that cross, more or less.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    If you are looking for a match, I have a truncata that's at about the same point...just let me know.

    well, I guess I am game to give it a shot - but my track record for seeds is atrocious. If anyone wants to send me pollen, I will send seeds back - they are better off in the hands of anyone but me.
