    Cool D. regia flower

    Hi,

    My D. regia is in bloom and i would like to produce seeds. The problem is that the flowers are closing before they are producing pollen i would like to pollinate the flower, is it normal for the flower to not produce pollen. Or is the D.regia self pollinating?


    Regards

    Umm...do you know where the pollen is located? The anthers are pretty prominent on D. regia....

    Yes i know where the anthers are located. I have been pollinating flowers for 40 years but these flowers are not producing pollen. My question was does anybody know why?

    Regards

    Just so you should know, D. regia doesn't hybridize really, or so I've heard.

    Edit: Ah! You may want to cross itself or with another regia. That's actually a good question. I have no idea why it wouldn't produce any pollen in time.

    Hey there Fire rock,
    I have no idea why your plant is not producing pollen.
    I have only been able to get seed 2 0f the 7 years that I have been trying.
    Please see my article inthe Fall BACPS bulletin.
    If you ever get any pollen use today's pollen on yesterday's stigma.
    4 years from seed and these plants still haven't floweed.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
