Seeds and germination issues / Adenophora nikoensis var linearifolia
« Last post by Peter Kohn on June 25, 2017, 09:15:48 AM »
Apologies for posting this here but I obtained seed under this name from this year's Meconopsis Group seed distibution.  We had good germination but the resultant plants do not have the narrow leaves we expected. If the member who sent the seed to Ian reads this, please could you tell us more about the parent plant.

Just great to see this. My M. henricii are just sown this year so looking forward to them flowering. They are looking healthy and still in pots.

Thanks for that Matt; I have already sown some punicea seed I collected mid June, so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

The golden root mealybug was discussed at the group meeting of 17th October 2015 within Alan Elliot's talk 'Propagation of Meconopsis'. It was subsequently reported in a group newsletter of November 2015. Both of these can be found in the Member's Area of the web site.

I seem to recall that Pat Murphy then took the floor and gave an impromptu talk on her own special method of dealing with the potential of these bugs arriving on incoming pots. Sadly this is not reported in the Member's Area. I seem to recall that it used many old nylon tights and much work but she felt it was justified.
