Richard

Na 2 maanden het eerste mini plantje.
Als het zo groeit als dat het kiemt dan verwacht ik voorlopig nog geen bloemen..


Lisa

Na 2 porties zaadjes is er nu 1 uitgekomen. Allebei de porties maanden uit elkaar gezaaid. Ik laat ze nog wat maanden zitten, mogelijk komen er dan nog meer uit(zitten er nu 3 maanden in)


Olav

Plant in mijn jonge jaren lang gehad (op de vensterbank) , dankzij zaadjes uit een botanische tuin.
Bloemen zijn ware kunstwerkjes met haartjes die รฉรฉn kant op staan. Insect kan wel in de bloem maar niet meer terug kruipen.
