Tiger Splendens’ bulbils are getting ahead of themselves this fall.
They seem to be preparing to jump from the mother plant.
Many have enlarged and grown roots while still clinging to mama.
I had noticed that some bulbils seemed to be nibbled on.
I wonder if the mama alerted her babies to bail out early?
Plants do communicate with other parts of the plant and neighboring plants.
I will be placing these in shallow pots of peat.
These are the grandbulbils of my first Tiger Lily.
This mama plant was a baby in 2018.
Bulbils grow up so fast these days!
One thought on “Rooting in the Sky”
Bulbils are is interesting. I guess they can just roll away to a new location.
