    Hey, i was thinking of getting a Green Dragon and a red dragon in my next order of CP's

    but then i said to my self why dont i try to raise one from a bulb here.

    How long after i plant it does it take to grow? i know from seeds its about a year or so, how long is it with the bulbs you guys sell?

    i know plant in schultz canadian sphagnum peat moss. 80% moss 20% perlite.

    i have the 3" pots already from this site with the trays.

    but How long will it take to grow? and also, how deep do i plant it in the soil?

    Thanks

    the average time is about 1-2months. The plant will already be growing. So you are basically waiting for it o just grow out [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    You can see a 'line'.....there is a white fleshy part...you want to plant it right around that line.

    If you have the time, growing from a bulb ( rhizome) is cool. You just have to be patient. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I believe the line Jeff is talking about is the change from crisp white tissue to green/green red/red (depending on the sport) Plant the bulb where no more white is showing, with the green material above ground.

    the community calls these things bulbs, though, in the traditional sense of the word, they are not.

    Stefano,

    they are roots, and the lower portion of the plant, the crispy white area, and a little bit of green.

    Basically, and don't hold me to this, they are plants damaged in shipping, so rather than take the effort to grow them out, the clip off the damaged material, discount it, and sell it to you. your not getting a lesser quality plant, the genetics are the same as all of them, your just getting one that had a rougher time of it.

    Yes, you will be getting the first picture. Just dig a little hole and plant it into the soil.
    It might look a bit pathetic for a while, but give it a couple of months and it will grow into a normal sized VFT.
