    I found it difficult to cross-pollinate my plants during the week, as they bloomed for only a few hours a day (while I was at work). I ended up taking my plants to work and pollinated them at my office. So, don't be ashamed! It's not easy... I do the pollinating on weekends nowadays.

    I've very pleased with the ordensis x paradoxa as well! I haven't lost 1 single plant out of the batch Strong plants!!

    Once some of my other little ones develop their characteristics and get larger, I'll post another thread.

    thanks Pyro!

    I like that set-up a lot. Now if I could only get a set-up for ultra highland neps. That's what I really need.

    Yes, well I work 06:00-14:00 so it is harder for me to claim missing their bloom period. Though the rugrat is usually down for a nap when I get home and going into the back room (which shares a wall with her room) and tinkering around would probably disturb her. Of course saying she is down for a nap does not mean she is asleep so...

    I like the idea of bringing the plants into work so as to pollinate them. Do you need to do anything special for that? Put them under a high wattage bulb or something for heat? I might take that route. Just checked last night and kenneallyi is showing a coupld impendings inflourescens so maybe I can cross that with something.

    Yes, I brought to work a seedling tray (1'x2') with a 24" long fluorescent light fixture and heating mat. I pain, but it was worth it. If you're around on weekends, you can simply pollinate them, depends on how many seeds you want.

    Thanks. Not as nice as your avatar though. Those are the ever-present burmanii in there with them.

    Very impressive Manny. It looks like the rightmost is starting to spiral inward...
