Harvest time

Post by Ghazanfar Ghori »

I've gotten enough L. meeboldi going to start taking some out. This is right out of Stage 2. The plants had already started to develop small roots since the jar was over 8 weeks old, so instead of dividing it further, these two jars were 'harvested'.

Pics w/ camera phone. :) Sorry.

I have 40 more jars like that :)

Cool! So you're bringing some Saturday, right? :-) I'd bid on it in the auction, or buy some outright; I have one mature plant I got from Kris in a previous auction, but it's so cool, I really need more.

Grow it out and you could really make some $$$ on aquabid! Until you flood the market!

The leaves might melt away but the rhizomes should still be there. I've got some going in my 215 that did have a little melt, but its growing well now. Remind me before the next meeting and I'll bring you more - I have more than enough lol!
