    I have a Sarracenia x wrigleyana hybrid with a bloom that has finished opening.

    I wanted to know if this plant can be self pollinated or do I need pollen from another plant to pollinate it?

    I have noticed that pollen is already being shed on this bloom so if it can be selfed I need to l know before it dries too much.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    The photo is a little out of focus because I have the shakes today. I will take a better one tomorrow and add it to my website.

    Here is the bloom from S. wrigleyana

    Ahh! Very nice! Thanks for posting the pic! I can't wait for mine to send up a flower.

    Savage Garden says you can self-pollinate the flower by collecting the pollen that has fallen and sits in the seed pods upside down umbrella style. Using a small brush collect the pollen and deposit of dab of this onto each of the five stigmas. Good luck pollinating. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks for looking that up for me!

    I will self pollinate it tonight and hope for the best. if everything works out with this I should have some hybrid seed to share down the road.

    Problem with selfing a hybrid though... you never know what the progeny will look like from seed.

    Oh well, this will be a learning experience.

    Cheers,

    Hi John,
    I don't understand your question?

    The word Cultivar is defined as...

    That goes for any plant that is worthy of propagating. Sarracenia wriglyana is a leucophylla x psittacina hybrid. All hybrids that are self pollinated will develop seedlings that are highly variable, ranging from very similar to the parent to totally different in many cases.

    If we destroyed all cultivars we wouldn't have any plants in our collections.

    Sorry, just felt the need to point out the terminology.
    Cheers,
    Sean
