agave cam update #2-- my biological clock is ticking

agave cam update #2-- my biological clock is ticking

When we last left our hero, he was wondering if he could ever fulfill his destiny, cooped up indoors, with no sunlight overhead, or breezes to carry his pollen scent.  "Maybe it was the garland that festooned my fronds.  Maybe the hustle and bustle of the festivities around me.  Never mind I've hit the ceiling in my career development.  You can't fight nature!  I'm in the mood for love...they say early morning dew on the stamen really does the trick...let me sing a few bars."  But look-- he did it!  Since his flower is a panicle, as discussed in the last blog, it would most likely be visited by bats or hummingbirds.  Then be on the lookout for bulbils (clones) forming on buds by the base of the flower.   So leave those greenhouse doors open, you never know what may want to fly in!
