Hey all, I have some Petiolaris seedlings starting to sprout and I have some questions I can't seem to find answers to. My first questions are about transplantation. My seeds have been germinated in a germination dome, on a heating mat, at 100% humidity. Keep in mind my seedlings are extremely tiny, barely visible to the naked eye. Also keep in mind some of the partitions in the dome contain seeds that have not yet germinated (some species have germinated faster than others). At what point do I need to remove the seedlings from the dome and begin acclimation? Better yet, how long can the seedlings be left in the dome with no Ill effects? My concern is that I have several partitions with seeds that have yet to germinate and I'd also imagine that the seeds that have sprouted will soon have brothers and sisters growing alongside them in their respective partition. I have read that they can/should be removed and transplanted once they sprout, but how long can they stay without removing them from the dome? Will it hurt them to stay there for a while until the others have time to sprout? My last question is about algae. I have some green slime (for lack of better words) growing in 2 or 3 partitions. I don't think it's mold. Maybe algae, moss??! Anyway, my question is can it kill my seeds? I will forgo uploading pics because I'm sure anyone familiar with germination knows what I'm talking about when I say "green slime".
here are some of the more photogenic petiolaris in my collection. broomensis by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr caduca by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr ordensis by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr fulva by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr dilatatopetiolaris by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr lanata by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr falconeri by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr derbyensis by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr thanks for taking a look, here's a macro photo of lanata. hope you enjoyed! _MG_6829 by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr
hello all, i put together a collage of various petiolaris traps put side by side so people can see the differences between each. starting from the left, broomensis, darwinensis, derbyensis, diliatatopetiolaris, falconeri, fulva, kenneallyi, lanata, ordensis, and paradoxa. thanks for taking a look!
two plants, same species, the one on the left is currently emerging out of dormancy, and the one on the right is starting to enter it... truth be told, i thought i almost lost the one waking up; it's dormancy pattern is different from the other petiolaris in my collection- namely, the plant just aborts the growth point altogether, and the remaining leaves slowly die off, one by one....
