Our CAP 500 eximiums must be synchronized.
And more lance hooks?! I am 'jealous' but happy
for your great success with those seeds.

Nice, healthy c. tovari, @ChilliCrosser.

I see the almost horizontal lower laterals down
under the foliage, mine both do that as well.
Wonder if that is a c. tovari trait?

CAP 500 c. eximium looking good, James!
I need to get on the stick and get a pic of mine :confused:

A couple of wilds from the greenhouse.

CCGN 22795 c. praetermissum white flower.

Pair of c. flexuosum.

Decided to make use of these extras and use some tiny 1L airpots I remembered I had.
Plan to keep them small and indoors in a sunny porch. Good for extra seeds and easier to keep going in the off-season.

Coco + perlite + vermiculite mix. I will use the same approach I've used successfully on my bonchi which is to partially dunk the pot into a bucket of nutrients and then let it drain.

Left to right: C.Galapagoense - C.Tovarii - C.Rhomboideum

It's reaching that point where I'm starting to see a lot of activity from plants, both this season's new starts and the over winters.

The new season's Lanceolatum is chugging along well.

It's surprising how fast these guys develop after such modest beginnings. Just 2 months ago it was this tiny thing.

It's started to bud now, as well.

OW Lance is going into year 4 and pods are starting to ripen. Unfortunately, I left it outside on a tough day, which caused it some pain and shut down production, so there aren't many pods in this round. Plenty of time still for a better round 2 though and I recently cleaned and potted it up in prep.

One of the Texas Rice is a variant, with the flowers more pendant and having a purple border. It showed slightly darker foliage initially, as well, though that's gone away since the transition from T5HO to LED lighting. I was surprised to see one of the Chacoense CAP 501 that just started blooming also has purple rimmed flowers.

OW Rhomboideum has been flowering for a while now.

It's been climbing up the support toward the LED and seems happier the closer it gets - it got a little too close though, and a few leaves were burned. Still happily setting pods, though.

The Flexuosum have all be outside for a while now and are flowering and setting pods. This pic is from the dark purple flowering one.

Hey, thanks @ChilliCrosser. I was happy to see your recent success with the Lance germinations.

This flex is always purple, but it ranges from perhaps slightly darker in the coldest parts of the shoulder seasons to a fair amount lighter during the warmest days of summer. I have another that doesn't ever get this purple and loses all its purple coloring during summer. I've been planning to start a selection process with seeds from the darker one to see if I can continue to get it darker over the generations, but haven't gotten going on that yet.

That'd be a nice selection project :-)
