Tylecodon, Bulbine and Phyllobolus; Post 'em if you got em'

Post by C And D »

The winter growers are starting to sprout.
Lets start a Gallery of photos of these interesting plants that are sticks or bulbs all summer long, only to come alive in Fall with shoots of green out of every growing point.
Add Othonna, Ornithogalum, Lachenalia, Mitrophyllum, Monilaria and other Mesembs

Sorry, I forgot my photo memory stick at home, I will post some tomarrow.

I don't really do dead sticks. Do Conophytums count? Sheathing Gibbaeums? Not quite show plants, but interesting when you look close.

They arn't big with most people yet.
But I got my memory card back, so here goes.
Note to Ian, increase the size of your pictures, we want to see details, and yes to conos and gibbys, sure why not. Thanks

Since they just started growing, we won't have big expectations of the plants looks at this time, maybe we can even see the development over the months!

Here's my last Bulbine x2
Bulbine praemorsa, from the ISI, its kinda like a baby green onion
Image

Three tick plants. I thought I lost that 3rd baby tick, I probed around a couple weeks ago and determined it was gone, but miraculously, it came back from the dead, or more likely it was disguised as a piece of pumice.
But they don't do much, but its good to see them come to life every fall.
Ornithogalum unifoliatum
Image

This Sphalmanthus surprisingly was flowering, just in time for a photo.
Sphalmanthus prasinus

This plant seems to never stop having great little pink flowers, and the stem is fattening up nicely, I've been selling a lot of cuttings of this guy

Cyphostemma bainesii 3 or 4 years old from seed. It sits like a rock the whole year and burst out now. Beads of sap that are solid on the outside and still liquid on the inside. No idea what they do.

I got one tick plant from Tim Jackson, and the other from the Huntington last winter, it had the baby in with it. It was an ISI plant. There are a bunch more Ornithogalum species, I'll grab some more shots when it stops raining.

Here's Phyllobolus pearsonii
Image

The other Phyllobolus resurgens decided to flower too !

These two Phyllobolus flowers didn't really open enough to cross pollinate until days after they first opened.
I tried cross pollinating day after day, and not until yesterday did I see any pollen, now its everywhere.

This Trichodiadema fergusonia (spelling?) has a fat root and pretty flower
