Rohdea Japonica, Seedlings Part3
Rohdea Japonica or Omoto in Japanese is a very slow growing plant. I started the seed propagation about first week of June. Please see the Propagation from Seeds here if you want to know the step by step instruction on how I did it.
It took over a month for the seeds to finally start sprouting. I am really excited to see these seeds grow and develop to a mature plants but it will be a long awhile before it forms into clumps. It’s worth the wait, Omoto or Sacred Lily will have a long life once established in the garden.

Growing ROHDEA JAPONICA
It is quite interesting to see the pearl like seed develops an eye before it sprouts. It’s like saying I want to come out now and see the world!!!
The seedlings are now showing off after a month and a half.
I started spraying the seedlings with liquid fertilizer like a Miracle Grow. To feed them and give them the boost to grow well.
