    d. tomentosa blooming, think?

    The new tomentosa is liking its new house.

    Will it self pollinate? Will I be able to collect seeds from this one ? Will they be true (just as the parent)?

    That's a happy, healthy-looking plant. 'Seems pretty dialed-in. Should you manage to get some photos of the flowers it would be nice to see them here.

    Hey Jimmy,
    Congrats on your impending flower(s). Mine just finished it's 7th (& final) bloom on it's stalk this morning. I hand pollinated 3 or 4 of the flowers so I should know soon if hand pollination helps or is a waste of time (although I suspect this is info that is available with some searching -- or by asking NaN). Although looks can be deceiving, the pods sure look swollen & full of seeds.... (fyi - pics of plant & flower are over in "The Dew Line" thread).
    All the best,
    Ron
