Dug up two fans growing outside of the cage.
Seedfork On May 6, 2018 Miscellaneous Event
First scapes this year on this plant. I had been checking everyday and never saw a scape and today there were two already above the cage. I am assuming they had to be several days old. They are very thin scapes, so that may explain how they were missed.

Moved two clumps of red ribbons from the bog, they were growing very well in the wet conditions.
