That is how the bat flower got its name. The bat flower is a plant from the tropical areas of Southeast Asia and is used to a moist and shaded growing spot.

Joop

Zaden in zaai- en stekgrond gezaaid, in een bamibakje met deksel, op 25C. Na ongeveer 3 maanden is er eentje opgekomen.


Sarah

Op 21 december gezaaid in een kweekbakje met vermiculiet (dat ik goed vochtig heb gehouden) op een warmtematje en een raam op het westen. Nu, na ruim 7 weken, is er een zaadje gekiemd!


Richard

Deze is mij ook niet gelukt zaden van 2 pogingen..

De witte tacca daarin tegen precies na 1 maand 10 plantjes gekiemt, 1 is gesneuveld... de overige 9 hebben inmiddels 3 blaadjes. Staan op 25gr. In de propagator.


Sharmaine

In oktober de zaden gezaaid in een verwarmde kweekbak, tot nu toe is er nog niks ontkiemd. Ik ben benieuwd of het nog gaat komen!
