    Counting chickens before they hatch

    D. scorpioides




    D. hamiltonii


    It's been 6-8 years since I've had D. scorpioides flower for me, I moved them indoors and no flowers since. Last fall I moved most of my pots outdoors again because they were on the decline. Also to try to get them to flower. I lost track of my white flowered plants and I had a few pots from plants that the source didn't say what color flowers they were. The first photo is from a pink flowered plant. The others are unknown. Hopefully they are white flowers in which case I may be able to get seed by crossing the pink with white.

    Only plants from one location of D. hamiltonii is starting to flower so far. The other location is usually 3 or so weeks behind. I haven't had much luck that past few years getting seed. Either the plants don't flower or I just don't get any seed. Hit or miss - most frustrating.

    Nice shots! I've only got one of my Scorps to bloom once. It was 4 years old at the time. Grow indoors under a T5 light.

    What is amazing is that you have actually gotten seeds from this species. I've been growing it for 8 years now and have never seen a flower stalk.

    Just got D. riparia to flower! Looks like seed pods are developing, and I may have a cross succeeding with oblanceolata (as the pod is swelling)

    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.

    Deep pots (a least 6 inches) help. And they need a definite winter (no frost).

    Okay so it turns out the "white" flower D. scorpioides may actually be pink flowers.








    D. platystigma "A"
