Stylidium caespitosum

Well it certainly looks like these plants do in fact have long roots. They're not averse to sitting in water either.

The pot is a 3½" square long tom (5" deep).


While we're here we may as well post some photos of the carnivorous bits too.



The same plant at the end of May.

Nice flowers!
same here, i grow mine in a 12inches pot, with a lot of roots under.
no 12" wide. A pretty big pot.

Maybe i will have to make divisions, since i have 15+ plants in the clump. Maybe its the reason why i have so much roots under.

I cannot find a pot like your, not very wide but very deep.
Nice plant and flowers !

S. debile and graminifolium also shoot long roots for me.

There is about to be the explosion of a flower froth.

A bit of "froth"

I thought I should post a photo of the S. caespitosum foliage as it is at this time of year. It's not quite as green as the above photos may lead you to believe.

Oh wow, love that red foliage!

Does it transition back to green eventually?
  • #13
Not fully back to the green Dan.

New growth of the green leaves/crowns.

I love it! My S. debile doesn't seem to be a fifth as vigorous as my previous clone. Would love to grow more enigmatic australian plants, but not if theyre gonna be this whimpy...
