Mexican gween onion propagation


#1

one of my favorite edible ornamentals carrying out sexual and asexual propagation respectively via seed production or bulbil formation-- both at the inflorescence
the bulbils are about the size of garlic segments which leaf out on the fly(black arrows) and may be picked apart and planted like you would onion/garlic segments. The seeds are black little specks on the dried up flowers(encircled). Seeds are viable but take longer to size up

#2

here’s another variant of vegetative reproduction: developing a spear with a bulb midway

and after several days, the ‘pregnant’ bulb bursts with a bunch of babies-- via caesarean section!
