    Was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to cross both of these plants. I got some flowers going on [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img].

    I was thinking maybe, 'Capadoxa' or 'Parensis' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Nice Jimscott!

    Is there any technical procedure I should follow, or should I just mash the two open flowers on each other? Also how long do I have to cross-pollinate before they self polinate themselves? Meaning would it be too late to cross pollinate a flower if it already opened and closed?

    Smooshing is the easiest but not the most effective approach. Some people use toothpicks and specifically transfer pollen. I would think that by the time the flower has closed it would be too late, but I'm not sure. I'm speculating that it is analogous to ovulation and menstruation - a window of opportunity.

    Check out the cross-pollination article in the article forum.
