    If any of you are successful in pollination, I'd love to get my hands on some seeds so that I could try germinating them in vitro. I'd be happy to purchase seed, trade plants for seed or offer germinated seedlings back in exchange for the seed.

    Seedlings in vitro grow about 5 times as fast as in vivo, so I could probably have some fairly mature plants in about a year.

    jefforever: very nice you have 2 flower stalks at the same time that is beautiful!

    My h. minor has been blooming for some time now and doesnt seem to stop anytime soon. She is working on her 4th bud now. I try to polinate her , younger flower with the pollen from the older flower. Do you know when it is the best time to collect the pollen? When the colour of the petals changes from white to greenish? I hope I get some seeds to try in vitro. that would be very exciting:-)

    WOW! A lot of people have flowers open/developing right now.

    Klasac - Thank you.

    I've never done this before, but from what I've read you should just vibrate the anthers occasionally to check for pollen on you older flower. By checking now, you can be sure to harvest the pollen on time.
