I planted 10 HBWR seeds. Nothing happened for 10 days.

I soaked my seeds in rain water for 2 days. I did not treat them in any other way beforehand.

 

Now one germinated. Seems to be a strong one.

Should you decide to grow some on your own, please share your pictures here.

Here is a lil one that I am hoping to keep inside for the winter as a houseplant. I have the feelings its gonna have live under the grow lights though.

Lovely plant you have here, the first one I get to see. Thanks for posting coorsmikey. I'll definitely try the same when winter sets in - with artificial light and a small growhouse.

I’d like to try but I don’t have nearly enough light, it would have to be indoors for the winter as well.

9 days later ... looks healthy, a sensitive plant. I keep it under plastic cover although not necessary.

My baby is doing fine. I keep it in a large enclosd growbox.

I likes the warm, humid climate and the morning sun.

At noon I cover it with shadow cloth.

I don't water much,  it almost lives from the moist soil and from the warm, humid air around it.

My Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is 2 months old and 9 inches tall.

The new leaf has a nice silvery hue on it, it's hairy on the bottom side.

The bottom side is exposed because the new leaf is coming up folded.

Note the small leaf to the right.

Two days of temperature dropping from 75 to 47. Rain and wind was enough for my HBWR to let the leaves dry out.
It needs tropical climate. I keep it in a small greenhouse for that reason.
It gave protection from rain and wind. But without sunshine the humidity dropped too low.
Now I installed a heating pad for the colder nights to come.
Prognosis is rather bad at this time. I don't think I can bring it through colder weather conditions. Maybe indoors in an artificial environment...
Edit: 3 leaves recovered, the upper 3 also stood up again - parts of them dry like parchment paper. This is a very sensible plant.

I kept my HBWR in high humidity and very warm - also overnight.

I installed a heating plate in the grow table I use. It's the white panel in the foreground.

That picture is showing a second HBWR - a backup, should the first one not survive.

But although having had a little crisis, it does very well. I decided to take it inside of my apartment. It's grown up and thrives very well now.

Alpoehi, it looks like your HBWR is recovering nicely. Hopefully it stays happy and healthy indoors during the winter.

This is a very sensitive plant. The 10 minutes outside in 32 F temperature exposing it to direct sunlight it didn't like very much.

The slight convex leaves got out of shape on the outside. It recovered very fast when I brought it inside again.

The leaves also are wandering a little bit during the day according to the light.

 

I will definitely have a good companion, it tells me if I have good growing conditions or not.

Official start of spring and my HBWR shows enhanced growth for a week already.
Keeping it warm near a south window did the trick for the winter.
I noticed a new leaf appearing at the side and a new offset at the stem.
Could well be it goes to blossom this year.
