    I swear theese plants can read minds. Was about to cut down the vine when, low and behold, it is flowering. The plant is my mystery maxima hybrid. It's a male. So, if anyone wants pollen, please let me know soon, or I'll just cut the flower off. Now, just because it's a mystery hybrid doesn't mean anything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Whatever it is, it's one of the nicest maxima hybrids I've seen.

    Yea, I'm just trying to see if anyone wants the pollen, as I think it could make some great crosses.

    Hi LOL
    just noticed my Ventricosa x Khasiana "female"is budding up could be a good cross as this thing is almost bullet proof and the addition of some extra would look cool.

    Hi LOL
    It can be wrapped in foil and put in the fridge to be kept cool but not frozen.As to how long it stays fresh who knows varies from species to species i think.
    Bye for now Julian
