    Hi all.
    My S. leucophylla 'tarnok' is currently sending up a flowering stalk (2 inches to date). I was wondering how i go about pollinating it, and what i do with the seeds once they pop out.

    I need to know:
    -Pollination
    -Stratification
    -Sowing
    -Specific care for the early months (years?)

    Thanks!
    Dave

    grrr... Well, i'll see then. In the mean time, i'd appreciate it if someone would tell me what to do in the event that it is not sterile?

    Tarnok has a mutant flower. Wouldn't know where to "go" to pollinate because it's a double flower. The place where the pollen usually drops and collects in a normal Sarr flower isn't there on Tarnok, and the stigmas are also mutated.


    Best bet would be to wait for another Sarr to flower if you want to try to self pollinate.

    If you do get a proper flower from another plant in the future, this is the page which will tell you everything: CPS Guide

    Crap. And i bought it because it was flowering size, as i wanted seed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Well, i can still give it a try. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I've heard that you can cut the growing point (i think it's called the rhizome) in half, and it will have a root system ready, and it will grow. Is that true?

    yes, that is true, but I don't really like doing it. I like the look of a bunch of growing points [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
