    Utricularia nelumbifolia germination

    Polinating was sucessfull, seed pods ripe and yesterday I placed some of the seeds in water. Took some pics with a few hours interval and I will try it again, but with less time between pics some day with more spare time

    Flowers


    Seed pod


    13h55min


    16h10min


    18h43min


    23h30min


    Now when sowing, I'll have to try some peat and perlite mix, not enough sphagnum for all

    Enjoy.

    Great photos! What kind of setup for photography do you have? The seeds look like they are already growing when they are still in the pod.
