The smallest flowering D. serpens

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd share my flowering D. serpens. I sowed the seeds a little late. Will it continue to grow after flowering?

Any thoughts?

Wow, great little plant and nice flower. I’m surprised to see such a young plant flowering. I’ve never grown it before, worth adding to my wish list.

Such early flowering of Arachnopus species is usually a sign that something with the conditions is not ok, and the plantlet often withers after that "emergency-flowering". The reason may be either not enough nutrition from the beginning or too cool temps. Try to feed the plant and it will grow on if the temperature/light conditions are fine.

Thanks Siggi,

I'll give it a feed and hope. It's the first time I've grow the species, so it is a bit of an experiment.
