HBWR seeding cycles

Recommended Posts

I am on my second different crop of HBWR. My first grew and grew, likely from the constant sunlight, plenty of space for roots, all the nutrients it could handle. But never yeilded any flowers, pollen sacks, or anything other then a lot of really big leaves. After relocating, I started 3 more seedlings. Hoping at least one would yeild flowers, and one would yeild pollen and I would no longer need to purchase HBWR seeds. I kept these three trimmed short like bonzai trees, and intentionally kept them root bound. A month ago one started to grow light green almost white pods all over. Now the other two are following suit. Has anyone else had similar success with them being self seeding? How long do the pods take to mature completeIy? I uploaded two photos. They are signifigantly larger now. Thankspost-15143-0-61395100-1404496114_thumb.jpost-15143-0-57443800-1404496066_thumb.j

The flowers are generally bisexual, so will self pollinate. I'm not sure how long the seed pods will take to mature. Take note of the date you noticed the seedpods, and then take note of the day they start to turn brown. That's how long they take to mature :)

super excited by your post! how old are the plants themselves?

Think I might go trim mine back today if that'e the way to go - they are growing in 10-20L pots at the moment
