    Unhappy

    Is it worth my while to cross pollinate these two plants? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] And get seeds?

    Or will I get seeds at all? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] My concern is that they might flower themselves to death.

    Don't know if it helps or not, but I was given seeds of D. Multifida Extrema x Marston Dragon and they germinated for me last year. They just woke a few weeks ago, so it remains to be seen as to whether they will flower.

    Yes, you can get seeds as long as you cross D. binata varieties, although I am not sure if the hybrid will be fertile. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    No, they are sub-tropical plants.

    I hear all the time that D. binata is not self fertile... My "multifida extrema" flowered and produced viable seed last season without the help of any other plants that I am aware of. The seeds did not look like the typical hard black specks, they looked sorta wimpy and feathery, but I got new babies from them.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    Is D. binata self-fertile?

    Is D. binata hybrid self-fertile?

    D. binata is self-fertile, and as I have said, it is not always the case that the hybrids between D. binata varieties are self-fertile.
