Hello Jim,
I, too would be interested in hearing more from Ray. Out of the 18 seeds I
received 10 plants survived to maturity and one is now in bloom. none are
over 6 inches in height and most have one offset. I would describe my
"bloom" as a pale green with darker stripes, with a different look than any
other Jack that I have in my collection. The dark chocolate splotch is
just under the spathe at the curve on the inside. Not as flowery as your
description, but....
What exactly is NLC?
Am I to understand that this baby remains dwarf? I wrote last year about
thinking I had found a dwarf and was told by most on the list that it was
not likely and my plant would mature out to a full sized Jack.
Thanks for sharing the seeds Ray.
