Default propagating E. cinereum

Hi all,

I just propagated my Eriocaulon cinereum for the first time and did a little photo documentation of it. It doesn't seem like a very common plant in the U.S., but is really cool and can be had from any LFS that can order from Oriental Aquarium. Thanks for looking.

Nice post and very helpful thank you. I have been growing this plant for a few months and it is probably time that I did the same thing. I really love this plant I just wish it would grow a little faster.

Robert.

I don't have this plant, but I'm curious:

Is it important that the red part gets divided? What is that red part?

HI,

This is the case when we propagate Eriocaulon, be it cinerium or other sp. And sometimes it takes more than a few months to have one split like that......

Cheeers

It is kind of reddish pink, and I didn't even know it was there till I divided the plant. I think it is just a really short runner or something because it is a rosette plant, but that is what attaches the two plants together.

Here is a picture of them in my tank...they are still pretty small, but they have about doubled in quantity in the almost 2 months I have had them. They are realllllllllyyyyyy slow growers, so they don't look like much yet. They have really extensive root systems and are VERY heavy root feeders.

Thanks to Erirku for trading such a nice example of this plant recently, I was able to perform this "surgery" myself and yielding 5 plants from one. The biggest tipoff that it is ready are the leaf blades growing in opposite directions of one another. Below is a picture of where I made some of my cuts.
