P corsica

Recommended Posts

Gary, you might have to look right under the hibernacula. They bury themselves right down into the compost and a lot of the time you can't see them without moving some of the compost.

hmm most of my other pings the gemmae is around the hibernacula, I have had a root around but cannot find any, I cannot tip the pot out as I sprinkled all the seed of my plant on the surface so I want them to germinate next year...oh well!

Gemmae appear at the axils of the leaves, if you cannot find them (and you dont want to tip the pot), just use a toothpick around the bulb and see if you can find something. Sometimes you will have more gemmae, depending on season. I find some feeding/fertilizing helpful for strong hibernaculum, so maybe it also helps for more gemmae.

P. corsica usually produces many gemmae actually, almost like P. grandiflora.
