“Operculicariya Decayi” sowed on 29.04.2019 by BN

I really can’t remember how many times I tried to sow this seeds.

I have never had a luck yet…

However, I am trying this year again.

Before doing this, I got new info about the seeds…

It seems that  are “Operculicariya Decayi” seeds light-inhibited one?

So I decided to try to sow them in well drained cactus soil this time.

I used to saw them on perlite.

I will wait and see what will happen.

[Notes]: Seed soaked over night / 5 seeds / electric propagator – about 25°C

[Sowing]: 29.4.2019 (12°C in London, U.K. )

Sowing : 25. May. 2018

Rooting : about 1 week

[Notes] medium – vermiculite, water in propagator / room temperature (about 22c) / germination rate: 80%

It’s my first time to sow “Dioscorea Sylvatica”. I have sowed “Dioscore Elephantipes” a few times in the past. It normally takes for 2 months to get germinated so it was a good surprise!

(備考) ディオスコレア・シルバチカは、亀甲竜の葉を少し細長くしたような形をした葉をつけています。種も見た目はあまり変わらないように思いました。ただ、発芽のスピードが格段に早くてびっくりしました。これは、種類が違うからなのか、今回入手した種がたまたまそうだったのか、真相はわかりません。

“Adenium Obesum” – gernimation – seedling

[Sowing] : 26. March. 2018

[Rooting] : 30. March. 2018

[Notes] : Medium – well drained cactus soil / electric propergator (about 30c)

It was very easy and quick to germinate. It also so quick to grow as well. After germination, I took them out from the electric propergator and put them in a nomal propergator.

[P.S.] : None of my seedlings couldn’t survive their first winter outside. It seems that they are not good at the coldness comparing to the other caudex plants I own.

“Pachypodium Eburneum” by BN, 06.04.2018

[播種] : 2. April. 2018

[発根] : 5. April. 2018

[科] : キョウチクトウ科

[原産] : マダガスカル

[海抜] : 1500 – 1999 メートル

[備考] : 播種まえの24時間、メネデール入りの水に種につけました。種がかなり水を含んだように見えました。もう少し短くても良かったような気もします。

5個中すべてが発根しましたが、そのうち1本は成長が止まってしまったので、現在は4本の実生苗として成長しています。そして、すごく健康そうなのはそのうち2本。あとの2本は、この健康そうな実生苗に比べると成長も少し遅く、細いです。

[追記] : 2019年4月、1年目の冬を無事に越したのは、そのうち1苗のみです。
