Have you ever grown this one before?
Yes, once before and the plant really struggled. I nursed it long enough to get a few ripe berries. I’ve been meaning to give it another try for a while.

I have the cotton wool, bubble wrap and a 20 foot exclusion zone ready in anticipation!

Any other tips?

Some casual pics from the other evening. Both of my older C.tovarii plants getting into flower mode even with cold nights still. Neither has yet been moved back into larger bags and are still tolerating old media, to do list way too long right now!

Last years F1 for C.rabenii x C.tovarii in the same boat but seems happy with my neglect.

Old C.rhomboideum has been repotted since winter and is getting back to it.

Things slowly getting going on the outdoor plants.

Recovering C.lanceolatum from last year now flowering.

Single stemmed C.rhomboideum has decided this is the year to branch out at the bottom.

Old F1 for C.rabenii x C.tovarii back and flowering outside. I’ll keep stacking F2 seeds from this as germination has been a pain.

How’s it going for everyone else?
 
Slow here too but the aphids are enjoying it.

Tovarii still the thing growing best for me with our poor season. Well, also one of the original F1s for Rabenii x Tovarii is looking good again after having its head chopped off for the winter:

Various Flexuosum variants doing ok too

Finally, managed to awaken this potential F1 which had stalled. Looks leggy but it’s been in a glasshouse for the last month, so light not a big issue. Fingers crossed the wild genes are driving that type of growth. I’m pretty confident at the moment. Attempted domesticated C.baccatum hybrid with C.tovarii father. Only one that germinated 😬. Marks on the foliage are temporary from a recent foliar treatment.
