Unusual flowering regime
« on: December 13, 2011, 21:49:49 »
My Groenie(Little green dragon)(breeder Paul Kloeck) surely has a very unusual flowering regime.
Middle September(show time) it just had green spikes

By the beginning of October it started to colour.

 then by end of October some of the flowers have opened but each with a few petals with dark green parts.

A few days ago I took this picture. Some flowers did not open and eventually dropped.

Not a pretty flower but surely an interesting one.

Andre yours are the first one i have seen that actually opened some of the flowers. Were they sterile or could you pollinate some as i seem to recall nobody else have been able to sucsesfully polinate this flower.
A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

Hi Eddie,
Mine is also sterile and the only way forward is to wait for a sucker.
