Super excited that some of my alocasia dragon scale/ silver dragon corms have sprouted their first leaves πŸ₯°πŸ₯°and there’s still like 20 more to go lol some are just starting to get that elongated tip and some are about to send out their first leaf but ahhhhh look how cute these babies are!!!! Can’t wait until I can leave them out of the humidity box and they show their true colors β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’š #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PropagationStation #corms #corm #PlantTherapy #PlantCorner #PlantShelfie #GregGang #Greggers #AlocasiaAddicts #Alocasia
@Keyandre87 😱 this is sooo amazing πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ₯°πŸ₯° Congratulations! These are just too adorable πŸ₯°. Please keep us updated.
I don’t understand what you’re planting. Where do you find them these corms
@KikiGoldblatt aren’t they though!!!! I definitely will! πŸ€­πŸ€—
@clairsheart a corm is the swollen part of the root of an alocasia that’s buried and sometimes grows above the soil surface. They store nutrients and grow into a new plant , the same of that parent plant. You can snip these corms off to make new plants or you can leave them In the pot to make the current pot fuller. You find them when you repot your alocasias they look like little balls in the soil once you loosen the root ball and remove the soil from the roots. Sometimes they are tangled in the root ball and sometimes you’ll see them just right on the outside of the root ball.
@KikiGoldblatt I forgot to label which ones were which when I put them in the prop box, because I was too excited to get them started, so I’ll just have to see once they harden off πŸ˜©πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ lol
Always so exciting πŸ’—πŸŒ± new life
YAY ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!!! Keep us updated!!! πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸŒ±β˜€οΈβ€οΈ
What's that little black one?! I love growing corms! It fascinates me so! @Keyandre87
@RealSimpleMama will do!! πŸ€—πŸ˜
@skyhighsplants Its an #AlocasiaBambino, and it’s actually just super dark green 🀭
Cuuuute! A bambino is one I still need for sure! @Keyandre87
@skyhighsplants I’ve been growing that one for a mighty looooooooong time a lot longer than the others. I started the dragon scales/silver dragons in mid December only because when I got the mother plants they were all DRENCHED and sitting in water and ended up with root rot, luckily I was able to save the corms. The Bambino I started at the end of October, right before it started getting reallly cold here in Oklahoma.
Wow! Is that your only one?! I love doin trades!πŸ˜… @Keyandre87
@skyhighsplants unfortunately until it matures and produces corms of its own πŸ₯Ί it’s only taking so long because that plant too was super soaked when I got it and I had to save it, the corn was super small, and the only one it had produced.
They’re looking amazing!!
@Keyandre87 I really really appreciate you explaining that I hope mine makes them. I’m excited to watch it Grow does all the alocasia dragon scale have them?
@clairsheart Yw! And yes, all alocasia have them. some have many and some only have one. It just depends on your plant and how giving it is during the growing season.
