It's OK. I probably read the angst into it when it wasn't there. I understand, I was equally peeved when Photobucket changed everything, and not for the better. It's clumsy and bulky now. But at least you get usable codes.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

@ Maiden--wait, I was confused actually. There are two different batches of hybrid seedlings involving pulchella: nutans x pulchella Akopan, and pulchella Chimanta x nutans 'Giant'.
@Butch--not mastered unfortunately. But the progress curve has a satisfying slope. I was having fun with it so I encouraged Tim Krug to start hybridizing his plants, and he was kind enough to give me some of his seeds to multiply. I'd like to see the next x Tequila bred by an American, and with sterile cultures it will be easier to spread nice crosses worldwide.Actually my collina is going to bloom soon, does anyone have any pollen?
Ok thanks you have nice seedlings, congrats !
If you have a pulchella Chimanta seedling to sell, drop me a PM !
I will try to grow them at perfection
