    My adelea bloomed but now I am wondering how to pollinate it without the help of a bumble bee. How can I do it? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Suggestions are very welcomed.

    Unless you have a clone from another population, you can't. The plants are not autogamous (self-seeding).

    OK Thanks. What "IF" I were to pollinate using one species to polinate the other? Would they cross polinate and form a hybrid? If so that would be so cool.

    It depends on the chromosone counts. Adelae is 2n=28. I hesitate to offer much advise as this area is not one of expertise for me. I can offer you the following chromosone counts, based on 2n=28 which match adelae, and theoretically might produce fertile offspring:

    Hamiltonii, indica, neesii, nitidula, whittakeri subsp.whittakeri.

    If you are a member of the ICPS listserve, this might be a good place to voice this question, as I am out of my depths on this particular subject :-)
