    D. murfetii flowers in cultivation

    'About time for some news on this subject.

    After a cool winter in the window of my garage, under lights, I discovered that not only has my plant produced two basal sprouts but it was also producing a flower stalk. Several weeks later the first of the flowers has opened.

    This first flower has been open continuously for over 24 hours now and is about the size of a US dime. The other two of the three buds seem to be developing quickly now. The reading I have done gives me hope of producing viable seed without having a different clone to cross this plant with. We will see.

    Great freaking job Mark! Thanx for posting the flower pics. Crap, now I want to try again with this species, haha. If anyone can be successful pollinating the flowers and getting seed my money is on you to pull it off.

    Fantastic! How long are the leaves now? My plant definitely put on a lot of size last year and am hoping to see flowers next year at this rate.

    Thanks, Dj. Very kind of you!

    Nimbulan - The longest leaf the plant has produced this year is about 5" long but most are closer to 3". I may sacrifice the longest one to propagating more little ones. You have to be judicious in taking cuttings from this species, as I'm sure you know. They just don't produce that many leaves.
