when they are growing
- I check regularly whether they are waking up
- the net result is usually that only some 20 - 30 % of them decides to wake
up (sometimes even less)

tubercles. Maybe that's why so many are produced. Strangely enough, with the
tubercles of the Dracontium ally Pycnospatha, the results are much
