On July 1st I posted a pic of this one With the bigger squishy one. It had two tiny sprouts emerging. It is crazy the rate that this tiny thing is growing. I bought a small stake for it last week and didn't get around to potting it up and staking it. The stake is too small now :( Holy Cow! What to do? I have a cone shaped wrought iron hanging basket that might fit over the kitchen sink. I guess I could twine it up the chains? I've measured it on some days and it was growing more than 1 inch a day.... The big squishy one is in quarantine sprinkled with cinnamon. Looks like it is putting out new roots.
The little Bowiea that could :)
It looks like it is heading for the 15 feet as described in the PF comments by someone from Australia!
Wonderful Fish_knees, it looks very nice. If you could find a bamboo U shaped you could use that for a compact support.
For supports I have taken apart metal coat hangers and shaped them into a U shape. Good work with the bulbs!!
When mine makes a long vine I wind it around itself and it makes a 'cloud' of green fluffy vine. I think its great looking. With some fertilizer and sun it will make tiny little star shaped green flowers.
I put ming outside in the sun now it's not doing anything, never have seen flowers on it.
Becareful with the sun. I put mine outside not long ago and it got sunburned and turned mushy on the burned side. I scraped all the mush off and put cinamon on the wet parts. That stopped the deterioration in its tracks. It is now back inside near a bright/sunny window and putting up several new vines. The cinamon makes it smell nice. I think I will keep mine inside year round.
I don't think they like full sun. They also aren't fond of high temps. It is one of the few plants I keep inside during the summer. They usually are dormant in the summer anyway. They are winter growers.
