More gruberi pups?
A couple of my favourite Vr. ospinae gruberi plants have finished flowering, set some pods and started producing pups, or 'pup' to be more precise, just one each, close to the centre of the plant. I had been hoping for a few more pups - just a couple would do! One plant is a 'Tiger Tim' and I'd heard that they normally produce a few pups, but maybe this just happens to be a time when one doesn't.
Anyway, I seem to recall reading somewhere that people have had some success increasing the number of pups produced in some plants by dropping a pellet or two of slow release fertiliser into the water at the base of several leaves on a plant, with the idea that in each one there is a good chance of stimulating a new pup to start growing.
I'm not at all sure just how well this sort of technique could work, but my question is, has anyone tried doing this with Vr. ospinae gruberi? Love to hear from you. Any ideas or info would be very welcome.
