“Petopentia natalensis” – yellow leaves

“Petopentia natalensis” by Botany Notes, Autumn 2018

Their leaves are turning to yellow and falling.
They don’t like coldness, so already are going dormant.

They are 2 years old, seedlings.
This winter will be their third one.
See you next year.

This is a fruit of my seedling of “Kedrostis Africana”, 1 year old (It’s the second Autumn, 2018). It has produced some fruits for first time. It had tiny green/yellow flowers in Summer.

All leaves are yellow and going dormant.

“Uncarina Roeoesliana” in Autumn

Family: Pedaliaceae
Genus: Uncarina
Origin: Madagascar
Sun: full

The seed does not germinate easily. My seeds germinated 2 out of 10.
It’s difficult to propergate by cuttings either.
However, it’s quite easy to care once it germinates.

My Uncarina Roeoesliana is slowing down and doesn’t take water so much, and seems going to sleep soon.

It’s my 1 year old seedling. Just woke up from darmoncy.

[Family] : Fabaceae (Leguminosae)

[Origin] : Coastal southern and southwestern Madagascar

[ノート] マメ科デロニクス属に属す植物。夏の間は水を好むので、日向で管理しながら、水やりをしています。こちらは昨年実生した苗ですが、成長は早くたくさん葉をつけたものの、秋になると葉が黄色くなり落葉し冬眠しました。今年の春4月中旬くらいから外で管理していますが、冬眠から覚めたのは6月末くらいで、同じく冬眠していた他の植物に比べたらかなり遅めでした。
