Pleione 2024
« on: January 28, 2024, 06:53:10 PM »
Potting up finally finished about 10 days ago.

This year I've decided to experiment with some bulbils. I took 100 'Ducat' bulbils, total weight 9 grams (!) , and split them across four pots. Each pot had a different compost mix in it.

At the end of the season I'll count the bulbs/bulbils in each pot and weigh them.

Its not that I need any more Ducat, I'm just curious about the survival rate of bulbils, and how much more (or less) living material (weight) I'll have at the end of the year.

It'll be  interesting to learn the result of this experiment, Tim.
