North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I have planted several Cordiline seeds in pots. about a dozen have sprouted.
After 4 months, the initla seedling leaves have grown to approx 13" and about an inch wide.
A large bulb has developed,about an inch in circumference, and smaller bulbs have developed arround the side of the bulb, thin leaves are growing up and are several inches high.
A week later, and a thin stalk is developing, with leaves at the top looking like it will eventually become a cordiline.
However, my friend who grows them too, says that he has never seen this type of development.
Seeds used: last years crop, seeds separated from the pods, and sown singularly.
Am I following the right path?
