my suggestion is to try this on one erio. take all the flower out from that erio, of course it will continue to put out flowers so just keep pull the flower out, but be careful don't pull the root out since the plant are small. at one point plants will give up putting flowers and split itself. I have done this with many flower type erios so good luck

What timing mate. I was just about to send you a message. Thanks for the advice. I will do this with one of the plants for sure. Or maybe with 2 of the plants? As I have 5 which are flowering.
Yesterday when I was showing this to someone from China on skype, I noticed that I have 2 more plants which are in the salad box. I have no clue how did they get there. They are in good condition but aren't flowering yet. Maybe because they were submerged all the time?

I just checked the photo of salad box on Page 2. You can see the plants I am talking about on the left hand side of the samll container. This means they have been there since always?

I have grown many Erio spp. Firstly each flower head contains both male and female flower parts. Flower heads are self pollinating. Let flower head mature. It will go from green to either white, black or brown depending on spp. To collect seed squash flower head in a small container and the mature golden seed will fall out of flower. Also try cutting flower apart with a scalpel to express seed. I get my seed using a microscope because of the small flower size which makes it easier to see if seed are mature

Yeah I've been following this thread for a while - keep up with those updates

To me the difference between E Sulawesi and E. Rat pictures (limited to what I've found on forums) seem to be a certain more dense spikyness with E Rat. So, more progress piks please!

Here it is...



As catfishbi suggested, I have been removing flowers from 2 erios out of the 5. On two of them, I have done the paint brush thing too.
One is left untouched.

Time will tell if they are self pollinating or they split if the flowers are plucked out or they need pollination of some kind.
This is the coming out as an interesting experiment.
