This is what dormant Monilaria should look like – little greenish lumps with dry and wrinkly skin. So.. bulby.
My Monilaria are heading for summer dormancy again. I stopped watering a while ago when I first noticed them drying out. Now I hope it all works out just as well as last time.
See ya in the fall, my little wormy guys!
Starting to return to their old wormy self.
The bunny phase is over, but I like the new coral phase as well.
I feel like my hand is a bad size comparison (my hands are really tiny), but I hope this can give anyone trying to grow Monilarias an idea of what to expect.
I seriously can’t stop taking pictures of these babies. The leaves grow 1mm per day
and are now already throwing gang signs at me when I check on them in
This is the Monilaria seedlings 3 days after watering (and after trimming off the dead leaves). Most of the seedlings grew 1-3 new heads and are now working on their “bunny ears”
Look look look who decided to wake up from dormancy. I’m beyond excited!
The awful and rainy summer, humid air and cold nights woke up a couple of my Monilaria seedlings. After a good watering yesterday (first water since early spring), even more decided to wake up. They did wake up a bit too early, but honestly, I’m just glad they aren’t dead.
Gonna post another pic when the first set of bunny ears pop out :3
Not much green left in this pot (very dormant).
An update on the dormant Monilaria seedlings:
The bunny ears are drying up at a nice rate now, leaving only an unsightly lump behind. I was unsure whether I was killing them or not, but now it’s pretty safe (well, safer) to say that they’re gonna be ok.
Gotta admit it’s awkward to explain to visitors why I keep a pot of seemingly dead plants.
