- Thread-topic: Helicodiceros fruit
Due to a hectic academic life lately, I have mostly been a silent lurker
on this board - reading a lot but adding little. But I have had a cool event
happen in my yard that I thought I would share . . .
The last few years I have been planting Helicodiceros offsets in various
parts of my California garden, and they have slowly started blooming in
early May.This year I had one of my blooms get pollinated naturally - no
scalpel, no paintbrush, no frozen pollen - and set a nice cluster of fruits
all on its own. I have never seen a Helicodiceros fruit cluster before, and
figured that few people have either, so here it is!
If you click on this Flickr photo link, you can see the fruit cluster:
I am working on getting more of my photos online as well - I had some
nice Arum, Dracunculus and Biarum blooms this spring.
Have a great week All!
Cheers, C.J. Addington
