First few flower buds look female...but the rest I can't tell. Give it another 2-3 days and you'll know for sure. ^_^/>

It's been raining so I had to pull my albomarginata flower stalk in or I'll lose all the pollen...yikes!

Yea the flower spike is still there. It's taller now. I was gonna chop it off cause nobody wants the pollen. I'll keep the whole thing for you.

You wanna start a viking nursery in Singapore? We can try :P/> Should have at least a few kloms among all the seedlings that will result from this! The dad's a promising klom too.

N. vetichii 'lowland' (MT) seems like a boy but the flowers are very few.

While N. bellii (MT) is definitely a girl! ^_^/>

The flowers.

Prana,

Could I book some pollen from you? I think bellii x veitchii will be interesting. Besides, the bellii may be hybrid with merrilliana so I trying to get its ID confirmed.

My own veitchii's flower stalk looks distorted and I doubt the pollen is any good. :rolleyes:/>

The flower stalk just appeared from the sheath today. I am not very sure when they are receptive...maybe 1-2 weeks' time? How is your veitchii boy? ^_^/>

:hitmyself:/> :hitmyself:/> :hitmyself:/>

I trimmed my N. ventricosa x campanulata vine...and the flower stalk appeared the next day on the cutting. It's a girl! :(/>

Prana,
As long as there is fresh pollen. I'll cross it with my own albomarginata pollen too.

JK,
Is your N. truncata male or female?

N. truncata is a Male, 90% sure

Again the female tobica x thorelii is sending out spike, yes this time 2 spikes :lol:/> one on each vine, the flower spike is forming on the older vine at fourth leaf interval

Hi,
HongRui, thanks so much. Yes I ahve viking pollen right now. I may be quite busy this weekend though, will discuss in PM.

Prana and JK, would love to make hybrids with your veitchii and truncata.
my female hookeriana is at Prana's Nov 27 post stage in growth. should be just in time for this cross.
I also have a female thorelli x (spect x north) - (JK, it finally flowered!) which would be ready in a months time, maybe. How mature is the truncata now, JK?

oh, anyway, I have a mirabilis open now, but after seeing all the other potential crosses, I am hardly interested in hooking her up with any more guys.

thanks
