Stephania Erecta coming to life

Post by saddlestoneman » Mon May 10, 2021 3:14 pm

Hello All

My Stephania Erecta is showing signs of life, from a rootless, shootless ball. You may just be able to see the starts of two shoots from the top.

I don't know whether any roots have formed yet.

best regards ... Stef

Stephania Erecta
some of these are grown for food, I was chatting to chap who lived PT THailand & he buys them at the markets per kilo to eat & brings them back to the Uk to sell.
Mine are a lot more football shaped not saucer shape

Hello All

My Stephania Erecta has done well, producing a single shoot and lots of leaves. It's also produced lots to small black seeds, which I'll try to germinate.

best regards ... Stef
