I’ve grown Helicodiceros musciverous in my Kansas City garden (USDA Zone 5/6) for many years. At first I was kind of surprised to see it return regularly even after winter lows of 0F and less. And I now have 4 blooming plants and other smaller plants.
I have a question. Is it common for this species to produce two flowering heads from a single tuber? One plant produced a flower at the regular season and then about 2 weeks later a second bloom stem appeared and flowered from the same head of foliage.
I rarely get two flowers in the correct timing sequence to get fertile seeds, but this year had 5 flowers from 4 flowering plants.
Appreciate any thoughts about the rarity of this happening. Best Jim W.
