Rise and fall of Quesnelia arvensis

devo_2006July 15, 2008

IÂve been sorting out a few photos, and came across a number of this Quesnelia as it flowered last season. These plants are known as very reluctant to flower, but when they do, it's worth waiting for. IÂve selected some of the photos to show in a few seconds, the whole 6 month flowering cycle.

Is it a selfer? I found plenty of seeds in my testudos and used them in evil experiments that, luckily, all failed.

Excellent time-lapse, Andrew. It looks almost like it's giving birth!

Nice shots Andrew....and thanks Lisa for making me go back and look at the pics again after that comment!!! :-).

These flower very easily here...for some reason. Winter: they are selfers.

Cheers

Dennis
