Bowiea

Monday, July 27th, 2020

For nearly two months my Bowiea was just a bulb. No growth. In the past before one section died back another was sprouting.

This morning the bulb looked like this–

Removed the wilted leaves. The existing leaf appears a bit damaged and dehydrated. Watered it this morning to see if it will perk up. Wait to see if it will recover.

Originally I planned to put the plants in the greenhouse, but decided to keep them in the studio. Clothespins are more difficult for the Jays to remove.
