After the Flower

Perry's flower is now dried and done... the next phase of Perry's intriguing life will having a single leaf (that looks somewhat like the leaf of the little plant sitting to the left of Perry) start to grow. Believe it or not, if you examine the plant next to Perry closely, it has just the one large, compound leaf. The plant goes through it's life like this till it's time for that leaf to die, after hopefully providing the underground corm with lots of energy for the next round of flowering. Stay tuned.
