Tullip Seed Pods

3 posts in this topic

Last fall I planted lots of tullip bulbs. They grew this spring and the plants were very healthy and lasted along time. Throughout the summer the plants developed a pod on the top. As the plants are dying, this pod is splitting and it looks like they are full of seeds. Is this how the plant reproduces? I though maybe the bulbs split and that how they reproduced. Wondering if I could plant the seeds and have something become of them. Have any of you tried this, and how did it turn out?

Some plants reproduce both sexually (thru seeds) and asexually(by means of other plant parts such as bulbs,corms, tubers runners etc). Tulips are one of these plants.

Plants that come from the bulbs you dig up and split will be an exact duplicate of the parent plant. Plants that you grow from seed will not be. I have never grown tulips from seed, but I believe you could. It would probably take a good 2-3 years before plants grown from seed would be mature enough to flower. To me this isn't really worth the effort, but if you've got some extra out of the way garden space to use as a nurse bed and the time and inclination, give it a try.

    • You can't even follow a conversation in your own head. According to has always been a zero sum game. Right now if the polls are correct, it is not either Trump or Hillary.....a vote for Trump or Johnson are completely the same.....neither are going to win. So once again .....please choose......either are the polls wrong, or are you going to waste your vote? It is a simple question asked for the second time.
    • Keep that knee on the ground.  I have never once said anything about the poles whether Trump was up or down.  So it's either Trump or Hillary.  Have to choose one.....sorry you're mad bro.
    • Yep, we are now at the point that Del and D2E have to say either the poles are wrong, or not vote for Trump. Because according to their own logic.....if the poles are would be a wasted vote. So what will it be? Have to choose one........
    • Heavens no.  Del doesn't believe in wasting his vote.
    • Not to worry LRG.  You can pick on me all you want.  I guess I'm in the same thought pattern as Getanet,  a house is not a priority now.  I know quality cost $$$.  One thing that I think is crazy is the amount of new houses that are available for sale.  At what point does the market saturate?  How many of these houses financed for 120 months will be repoed or sold at a loss?  A fishouse in every driveway?  Seems like it.   I wonder how much longer some of these builders will be around?
    • That's my description of our O line... I have faith in our coaching system that they will revamp their scheme...  This was like a fall apart game, it was bound to happen. Come on guys, get it together!!!! We will demolish the bears. 
    • Looking at getting the pro xt cabin. ..   Do the seats stay in place or do you have to remove them and put in the sled to get down to the 20.5" packed measurement?    How well do the square tubes work when cold? 
    • That's for sure.  But you sure are ready to point out any spelling mistake made by anyone else.   #hypocritesandfrauds
