Calopogon not coming up?
I purchase a couple of Calopogon tuberosus from Planteck Biotechnologies in Quebec back in April. The corms arrived in a ziploc with some moist mix and looked healthy enough (not that I know what a healthy Grass Pink corm should look like)
I put the bag in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks (where I stratify a lot of my seeds) and in early May I planted the corms about 2 inches deep in a large pot containing a 50/50 mix of builder's sand and peat moss. The pot is in a large saucer that provides about 2 inches of water at all times...nothing but rain water has been used. The corms are probably about 2 inches above the water level.
It's July now and i haven't seen a leaf. No sign of anything. Should I be concerned? I know some of my cypripediums skip a season now and again, do Calopogon pull the same no-show trick?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
