section Lupulina

I simply love anything from section Lupulina, I think your var of white hairs is more unique than those red or purplish hairs.


Bernabu, I have 6 seedlings not long out of flask but they don't look good at the moment.Is this a hard species to grow?


B.saltatorium var. albociliatum

Eric, As you know some seedlings take a little longer to get established, I think once your seedlings have got hold they should do alright especially with your conditions. They grow ok in my warm section. Now we are in our winter I keep a minimum night temp of 16C with the radiators and thermostat working, the day temp is set up to 23C. Of course, summer temp can go much higher.

Good luck with your seedlings.
