eriocaulon amanoanum aka erio japan


Does anyone know if this is the type of erio you need to pick the flowers off of? I know there are some that if they flower they will die.

I need to know soon, because I have 2 of them that are now sending up flower stalks.

Wow you have all the nice stuff. How big are they? usually the erios flower when they are mature, may die or stop growing but produce baby plants at the roots.

They are maybe 3 inches tall and 3 inches wide, one is shooting up 4 flowers, the other only has one at the moment.

I heard that sometimes if the flowers don't reach the surface they will make new plants, but was unsure if sp. japan was one of those.

I'd be rather upset with my purchase if this person had sent me a dying plant, seeing as one of these plants already had 2 flowers growing when I bought it (and it wasn't cheap).

Just keep pulling them off. It will give up after a while and resume growing normally.

I always pull the flowers off of any Eriocaulons I'm keeping. Why let the plants waste energy making flowers when you want it using energy to grow bigger and split?

Exactly. I notice that a lot of my E. parkeri flower at the same time while simultaneously stalling in general growth. I just keep pulling them off for a bit and things go back to normal. Often, this even accompanies a change in tank conditions or is a sign that they should all be split. Other species have been pretty much the same way.

This thread doesn't give information on specific species, but if you haven't already seen it, might help a little bit.
