I made some photos of blooming P.concolor. Real dark yellows , like sulphuricum, are still missing, probabely all from nature.
There is a photo of a plant, sitting in a plastic pot in a kind of coarse sand since 7 years now ! Would like to know where te sand came from.......3P.concolor.jpg5P.concolor.jpg10P.concolor.jpg12P.concolor.jpg22P.concolor.jpg22P.concolor-6-2013.jpg23P.concolor.jpg24P.concolor.jpg

Difficult to say from the photo, but are you certain that “sand” isn’t one of those Japanese clay products used in bonsai?

thanks for your comments !
yes, here they are easily blooming
origin is unclear, but they cannot all come from the same place, maybe same region ?
the color is a little bit more yellow , because of phone camera
still looking for real yellow ones and var.

have a good week

Werner, do you find the wild ones adapt easily to cultivation once ex-situ? And reflowers again? I guess one criteria is how long they bake in the sun beforehand.

here, yes, the Brachys at least. Others , not always.
I ordered 2 P.micranthum from China in Corona times, took 30 days in the mail, just wrapped in paper towel with disinfactant, after 1 day in water in perfect shape.

The photo of the mix is blurry but I wonder, could it be Kanuma?
