    Clivia seed sprouts

    I mentioned that I had acquired a few Clivia seed lately. Well I put them in small clay pots on vermiculite, covered with plastic for a while until they germinated (about two-three weeks) then uncovered and watched them grow. These are maybe eight weeks in these pics. I have to get new pics as they have two leaves now! See how the root came out of the seed and pushed down into the medium, then eventually a small leaf appeared and started upward. Isn't nature amazing?

    That is so COOL!

    The seeds remind me of the hippeastrum bulbils that I was transplanting today. I'll take a picture when I am finished.

    I kept having to stop because of rain, but don't get me wrong, I adore afternoon showers!!!!!!

    Wow!

    They have really grown, haven't they? I would say that they like the care that you are giving them, Kim!
