Reasonable 2015-05-08

An interesting process to promote germination which is quite successful. Plants are decent but the flowers are disappointing. All the same orangey-pink and with little of the darker markings shown in the picture very small. Other alstro varieties are more desirable.

Excellent germination and easy to grow 2013-03-13

The seed were sown in potting medium last October and kept in the greenhouse between 60F and 65 F. 29 seeds germinated and have been grown on in 3" pots. Plants are currently between 3" and 8" high and several have multiple shoots. These have been far easier to grow than I expected, from the way they are growing I am expecting a reasonble show of flowers. Watch this space
