D. Platypoda Woke Up.

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm happy to say that my D. Platypoda have survived their first dormancy period in my care.

 

One came up a couple of weeks before the other, same as last year, but they are both alive and growing.

 

I took a photo of the first one to wake up, which has now developed a flower bud as well.

I will post more images when the second plant (in the pot in the background) has put a bit of growth on and when/if the flower opens.

 

Best regards,

 

Ian.

The flower has opened fully today and I have taken some pictures. As soon as I transfer them from my camera, I'll post them on here.

 

Best regards,

 

Ian.

Thanks Corky,

 

The cephs were the plants that got me started growing cp's. Bought a packet of seeds and it went on from there. :give_heart:

 

I only put the Platypodas out for a few hours, so they get some natural light and a bit of fresh air. There are actually 2 shoots coming up in the pot that looks empty, which was a nice surprise.

 

Once I get my camera to download (having some battery problems) I'll post the picture of the open flower, sounds daft but it really made me happy to see it flowering.

 

Regards,

 

Ian.

I finally managed to get some pictures of the flower.

 

This is taken with my digital camera, but is a bit over exposed,

This one's taken with my phone camera and although not as close up, looks better in my opinion,

And another one from my phone, with my finger in there for scale, :laugh1:

Hope you like them.
