    thats not an alpina............this is an alpina

    grown from seed from 'Pitter Moon', could have mistook it for livida for the first 18 months i had it....bout 2 years ago it hit a growth spurt, sent up a flower spike bout a month ago, opened the flower late last week.....

    rattler, you're making seed, right? RIGHT?

    hahaha. i'd love to get my hands on some alpina. what's the difference between the typical and 'Pitter Moon'?

    the typical is alot smaller, 'Pitter Moon' and apparently seed from it are quite a bit bigger........not sure if it will self for seed as ive got nothing else is flowering, Pyro will have to chime in....

    as for pics of the whole plant, given the size disparety between the leaves i have to think it aint done getting bigger yet




    the leaves out of the bottom left of the pot on the bottom pic is closer to the size of my "normal" alpina clone thats much older than this plant

    nothing special bout my setup......think backwater(we dont have no woods) redneck meets tornado.....the wife keeps telling me i need to clean it up....messy as hell....the only thing you will pick up from looking at my setup is that im a firm believer in cheap as possible T8's for lighting and i dont subscribe to everything has to be right next to the lights for best growth.....ive got mexican pings a good 14 plus inches from the bulbs......
