The First Year of N°1701

20 posts in this topic

This is the story of the first year of my life. My Father-Mother was born and is still living in Amsterdam. One of these five fruits and seeds, that’s me:

Three days later on 6 June 2017 I was born, err … germinated in Kokohum®, err … in a city of Western Germany:

After another three days I got my first own home in a clay pot Ø8cm H9cm filled with 2/3 fine pine bark + 1/3 Seramis®:

Here you can see my seed petiole which is much longer than that one of an adjacent-ligular germinator (like Lytocaryum weddellianum):

For I am a remote-tubular germinator as you can witness here:

My 2nd plumule had to pass a long way out of the depth till it could reach the surface:

And a couple of days later I pushed my 1st leaf, the eophyll:

As you can see here on this pic when I became 3 months old the eophyll will go pinnate (maybe with two windows, too):

I have two younger brother-sisters here in Germany so that we are all together 16 siblings, … or 17? For there is also the twin … :greenthumb::)

Oh wait a second! I made a mistake. The 14 brothersisters I showed were from flower stalk #2. #1701 #1702 and #1703 came from flower stalk #3 just like 2 more brothersisters I didn't post yet. That brings the total number of brothersisters to 19. Mommydaddy is very proud!

I will see if I can make some nice portraits this evening so we can complete the family reunion.

And here are the 2 from inflo #3. The same inflo where #1701 used to hang out.

All these posts and pics of the beautiful Lytocaryum have made me want to grow some. Here's my first sprout.

Looking good my friend! More family is on the way because mother has 15 more brothers and sisters on the umbillical twig.
