    Finally flowering for you Scott?
    From what I understand you need to have 2 different clones of the plant and rub the flowers together.
    Since yours were seed grown, I do not know if that means you can take 2 plants grown from seed, which came from the same plant I guess, and it will work or not.
    All 3 of my plants have flower stalks on them again, so I'm interested in this as well.

    It's also my understanding that the gecko is correct.

    If you have 2 seed grown plants, they should work.

    To answer your question - No - not self fertile.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Just makes us have to work harder to get the seed (and then appreciate it more...).

    I've got a D. petiolaris and a D. paradoxa racing w/ their flowers - it'll be interesting if they are open together...

    Good luck,
    All the best,
    Ron

    two CLONES? that makes no sense. two seed grown plants is not the same as two clones of the plant. crossing two clones is just like self pollinating.

    but I guess you meant two clones from different seed grown plants. then it does make sense.

    Looks like I'll be developing some pollinating skills soon!

    I currently have 2 paradoxa flowering at the same time, on with pink flowers, one with white flowers. I have rubbed together those flowers that have been open simultaneously, and the seed pods of those that have been rubbed together are nocticably larger than those that have not been pollinated, so it looks like the flower rubbing does produce seed, although I won't know for certain until the seed pods open.

    "Two clones" is a short way to say "to genetically different clones". In this case "clone" is not used in the way of cloning = producing genetically equal invidual.

    Jim: I would cut every additional flower stalk from now on as those plants tend to bloom to death in cultivation!
