Well I haven't been around for a while and thought I'd jump in with an update here. On advice from a friend I gave my Roridula plants some osmocote this year, 12 pellets spread throughout the 10" pots. This resulted in a huge burst of growth from the dentata and it has since surpassed the height of my R. gorgonias, and now has approximately 30 growth points. Hoping for flowers next year. The R. gorgonias did not really show a change in growth rate, but I had a far better seed set than last year.
Excellent plant, I have no more plants surviving, shame I had one get to a pretty good size but I think it must of got the fungal disease and went downhill fast
Yeah R. dentata gets fungal infections very easily. With the gorgonias I can leave it out in the rain for a couple days without any problems generally, but I've lost a growth point on the dentata after just 24 hours of exposure. I also had one growth point in the middle of the plant get consumed and spread to the stem (appeared to be some sort of damp-off fungus) but luckily the plant was large enough to overcome the pathogen.
I'm working on it. The flower wouldn't give me any pollen yesterday, though I think that's normal. If I can get some to release today, I should be golden. Unfortunately each flower will only produce 3 seeds and I only have two flowers so I'll be pretty limited this time around.
