More japanese indigo flowers Lisää väritattaren kukkia
Kohta nämä pitäisi jo leikata, mutta vielä ei näy sinistä pigmenttiä vaurioituneissa kohdissa.
Last week I noticed flowerbuds also in the few pointed leaved japanese indigo plants which are growing outside. These plants were sowed March 31st. The formation of flowerbuds seems to be more depending of the variety than the day length, or at least variety is an important factor for early flower formation. The round leaved plants are growing so much they are overpowering the pointed leaved plant. Soon I should harves the leaves but there is yet no sign of blue pigment if I damage the leaf.
Round leaved japanese indigo early in the morning, the leaves are little curled after the night.
Mushroom season has already begun, with velvet pax (Tapinella atrotomentosa), which I need a lot for the kits:)
