Night 3 dribbles

We were only occupied 3 of our sites (Elbow, Molasses and Sand Island) last night and saw some activity at all 3. At Elbow, several ramets from one clone had small areas that produced bundles and one colony of a different clone had a very small patch of bundles.
Sand Island reported about the same. At Molasses, one palmata clone spawned farirly well and some cervicornis also spawned. They cervicornis colonies were outplanted by Ken Kedimyer so it is pretty exciting that they are out in the wild doing their thing!
We have had some uncooperative weather so far and the bundles that are released are getting washed out of the collectors so we end up with only a small portion of what is there. Hopefully the spawn will be so big tonight that we will get enough even with the surgey conditions we are expecting!
