    Aaarrrrrrrgggggg. Your 3 weeks to late for me! Mine has already decided to call it a summer and has gone to bed 'til next spring. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]


    Edit: Is yours from PFT/Exotic Gardens? If so, mine is probably from the same clone as yours and wouldn't work anyway.

    'nother edit: Whoops, nevermind I just reread and you say yours is a Multifida. Mines a plain ol' binata. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Kiento, If you have two multifida which are not clones of each other then you can use the pollen of one to pollinate the other. Since a lot of plants that we have are clones, it gets a little trickier to find pollen that will work. Clones are basically copies of the same plant, so the pollen from a clone won't work. It'd be like trying to use the plants own pollen.

    they're probably clones. if it's so hard finding pollen from OTHER people, what are the odds that the multifida grown by the same grower, in the same pot, will not be a clone?
    sorry to be the one that brings bad news, but oh well :P

    Wha? Ok, now I'm getting confused. So it must be two different plants of the same species, so why can't they be two different clones of the same species? Do you need a broader genetic diversity or what? What I'm asking is this, can two different plants of the same species (ie.clones - from tissue culture) pollinate?

    BTW, what is a definition of a clone. A plant that has a similar genetic identity, or two plants of exactly the same species? I'm leaning more towards the 1st. Someone help me out here...

    Thanks,
    Jason

    We are all the same? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I would like to testify...that maybe the level of craziness varies from one individual to another, like, say, on this forum...

    A clone is propagated vegetatively from a plant and should be genetically identical to the original plant, (barring any mutation from tissue culture). So they do need to be two different clones of the same species.
