    Has the rabbit died? (heli pollination)

    The flower on the far right was not pollinated (control), the other two were. Of those two , the middle was pollinated first

    I should have documented better but guessing 4 weeks on the center flower, two weeks on the left

    Still early I guess, but....



    The middle flower was pollinated using the pollen from the one of the right. The left was pollinated with a mixture of pollen from both the right and center flowers (just to increase my odds)

    thoughts?

    Don't count your chickens before they hatch

    I've seen the pods swell up on Sarracenia and Drosera and after drying them out and cracking them open to find a whole lot of nothing.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Av8or1, I must say, you are the best!
    I might try to cross my pulchella with my tequila if I get the chance.
    The pulchella is running a little behind the tequlia.
