    That would be a cool combo, H. folliculata x (heterodoxa x minor)

    So you have to use a tuning fork to collect pollen? It dont just fall off when the flower is tapped or the pollen is tapped

    Pollen is trapped within the anthers... the tuning fork simulates the vibrations of bees, this releases the pollen

    good to hear your getting pollen out of your helis , i have so many pods now , and seed every where , got some interesting crosses now , the ionasii pods are just about ripe too , ,got some nutan's seed, crossed minor x hetrodoxa x nutans , got seed from that already , got some tequila crosses too , the puchella x ioasii did not take ?? the pollen seems to have a short life span , i have not refrigerated mine because of so may flowers i had and had , ,recon i have about over 50 flower spikes this years and still going !! , may be we can swap a few seed soon mate , need a few different plants , we just can get them here !! darn customs restrictions are so tough here , if we can swap or what ever ,got heaps of CP seed here let me know ok even got my own nep hybrid seed too
    John
    Went took some pic's of seed pod and then the seed when I extracted them also some nutans seed i got plus some ionasii pods and a puchella pod too see if i can get them all on here
