    Pollinating P. Laueana

    I have a question for those who know their pings.

    Can P. laueana be self pollinated? I recently read a thread where someone produced viable laueana seeds by self pollinating it. Is this possible? Everything I've heard about laueana would lead me to believe otherwise, but if it's possible I really want to try next time I have a flower. If you have had any experiences with it, tried it, had success, etc, let me know, and I'll try to learn from you.

    Thanks guys!

    It may be possible but unlikely.
    I have tried to cross a ton of pings and got nothing.
    I would love to see a detailed write up on how to pollinate Mexi Pings.
    I have tried the toothpick method, small paintbrush, and pulling apart flowers.

    I think this is a SE North American ping.

    Zero, unlikely in what sense? Like is it physically unlikely, genetically unlikely, etc. Just so I know

    SDCP's do you mean like a south eastern NA ping? What implications does this have on it with regards to pollination?

    And also, I've had some P. vulgaris seeds germinate today that were in the fridge/freezer for two weeks and then treated with GA3. Still waiting on the rest, as well as seeds of grandiflora, poldini, and alpina (which I hope are ok on an acidic base...any info would be great!). I'll post some pics soon, and thanks for the help so far!

    Laueana is a mexican ping.
    Some know how to get seed from them, but I have had no luck.

    I have never bothered to try to self a laueana but think I have successfully crossed two laueana clones - will have to check my seedlings tonight.

    I have had that same level of luck / skill. I need a real person next to me, giving me technique lessons!

    Scroll down about 2/3rds of the way down to the flower parts and pollination section:
    http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/...ings/pings.htm

    Note: Many of the Mexican Pinquicula in cultivation for some reason or another are not self-fertile.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
