One of the pots of Trichodiadema densum from the Job Lot. This one has been growing under the bench on the sunny side of the greenhouse but I've now raised it onto the bench ad the daylight hours decrease.
All the pots of this have done so well that I now have a further three species planned to grow next season. The seed is sitting in the fridge ready for an early start in the spring.
The three species of seedlings , T. marlothii, mirabile and stellatum are all starting to show true leaves. I bought the seed from Australia last autumn, kept it in the fridge over winter and it's giving aboput 80% germination. That's good enough for me
Spotted two of the Trichodiadema starting to flower this morning. Unfortunately the weather is counter to facilitating the opening of the flowers. Perhaps there will be more sun tomorrow. In the mean time....
stevebooth: I don’t begrudge them the Sphagnum, it’s what is with it that I covet, plus they seem to totally remove the top layer and use the lower levels, I have hopefully rendered many of the pots more birdproof this afternoon.

dvg: So apparently the UK variant somehow commingled with the Indian variant to make a super love-child that's been named the Delta Strain...

stevebooth: The first new outside pitcher of the year has opened today, that’s some difference to the greenhouse plants. The flowers are looking nice though.
