Whats New
To start the ball rolling I shall give a small timeline presentation of Lepismium Monacanthum ssp espinosa (No. 316) from bloom to seedling, a period so far of approx 8 months
Blooming in July/August 2012
Fruit almost ready for harvest
Well ripened fruit freshly picked
Removing the seeds
Each fruit contains approx 25 - 30 seeds
After washing the seeds and removing all the pulp, they are spread onto paper towel to dry for a day or so
They are then collected by scraping them off the paper while inside a plastic bag
I did a trial with a few to make sure they were fertile and would grow, they were up within about 8 - 10 days.
This is the growth after about 20 days.
I use sieved seed raising mix with approx
20% fine perlite
This is how I grow them for approx 2 - 3 months
(on the window sill) in a light but not too hot position
This is the growth at 10 weeks
These 2 photos are the seedlings at present.
Approx 5 months.
