Ordered seed packages arrived today
The second of May I ordered four seed packages online. And today a package from the Zaden Gigant (seed giant) arrived. I ordered the following seeds:
- Cape sundew, Drosera capensis, 10 seeds.
- Venus flytrap, Dionaea muscipula, mix, 10 seeds.
- Aechmea nudicaulis, 10 seeds.
- Bulbophyllum siamenensis, 20 seeds.
As I can't find the latter as a known orchid species; I guess it's a misspelling of Bulbophyllum siamense; The Thailand Bulbophyllum.
I have experience growing the first two carnivorous plants from seed. Especially the Cape sundew is very easy to grow from seed.
I grew Aechmea nudicaulis from pups in Mexico, and got them even flowering. I like this species a lot and want to give raising them from seed a try.
As for the latter, while I have some experience with growing orchids I never grew them from seed, so this is probably going to be a bit of a challenge.
Besides the four packages I ordered I also got 40 seeds of blue waxweed, Cuphea viscosissima, for free.
