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
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.
