Hello, I am always happy to find these little treasures. I have found them on some of my plants. How about you? Which plants?

Wispy Rays is one that I am happy to have a baby on. I will look for others to add on my list.

Usually I don't bother but recently found two really nice prolifs on FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, so those will come inside to be rooted ( I root them in water in the kitchen window) Can you see them on the picture? Prolifs usually root easily here.

Hi, Julie
Do you let them begin to root first?

I didn't have any proliferation until now, do they grow on the scape where tthe leaves grow? I cut a scape which didn't have any more buds, and behind one of that side leaves I saw a white gem.. maybe it was a proliferation at early stage?

Well one plant that I really did not need prolifs on was Kwanso/Flore Pleno, yet I had one scape that had six large prolifs on it at one time. I broke of the scape stuck it in the ground and took a photo of it.

So you need to leave the scape on the plant to see if it will produce a prolif, or do they grow while buds are on the scape?

Yes leave the scape on the plant if you want to grow the prolifs and actually plant them and have other plants. When the prolif gets large (often it will even form roots) cut the scape about a half inch or more below the prolif and plant it.
Edited:
That was not very clear, cut the scape above and below the prolif then plant the prolif, not the scape.

Not really, it takes them a bit to get going. So don't be like I used to be and clean them off quickly.

Several of my seedlings have prolifs, I have not noticed any on the named plants, but I haven't looked either. I grew several last year in water until they had decent roots, and then potted them for the winter, keeping them in the house by a window. I think I will just try planting these next to the mature plant.

I'm not sure if this is a prolif or not! It's on Green Arrow. I've have very few of them over the years, and never one that is growing in this area of the scape. Anyone know if this is really a prolif or not? It actually looks more like two of them. Not sure what to do with it, but I'd love to grow them out, if possible.

@Natalie I had two prolifs on Green Arrow last year and they were high on the scape. Looked much like yours. They are good sized fans this year, but didn't bloom.

That is definitely a proliferation growing on bottom right of the photo. Let it grow and it might form roots, if the scape starts dying and can no longer support it, then you can cut the proliferation off, place in in a glass of water and let it root, then plant it.

Thanks! It's nice to have a confirmation on that. This is a fairly new plant, with the first scape this year, so I wasn't sure if it was just the way the plant grew, or if it really was a prolif.

Donald, it is interesting that your prolif grew in the same place. I do think that there are two of them, but the other one is on the opposite side, and I couldn't get a good picture of it, thanks to the sun this morning. I'll try again tonight. The scape is still very green, since it still has a bloom or two to go. I'll keep an eye on it.

I think when scapes have proliferations, they stay green instead of withering away like a spent scape. Just like when they have pods. They don't shrivel away until the pods mature are or removed. The scape on mine stayed green below where the prolifs grew. When the prolifs got bigger I cut them off. The scape was still green. Here's a post from last year on my prolifs if you'd like: The thread "proliferations" in Daylilies forum

Edit: Ha! It worked! I'd never tried to reference a previous thread before.

Thanks Donald. I know how to grow prolifs in general. It's just that I'm sure this one has two in almost the same spot, which is weird! I'll check your other thread in a bit!

I haven't seen any prolifs this year and I normally get many. But I haven't really looked yet. I'll have to look for them. I like to plant them in a pot, then in two years I have a blooming size plant to sell, trade or give away without having to divide a plant to get it. Easy peasy! Hilarious!

I typically get prolifs after my daylilies have bloomed. I will go to cut the scape and there will be a prolif growing on that spent scape. I typically wait until it develops roots before removing it by cutting the scape about an inch below the prolif and an inch or two above the prolif. I just plant them and let them grow like I would any small starter plant. Or you can share them with a friend! Smiling
