    Yeah those are seed from U. alpina so they are larger than campbelliana will be.

    Ok, I didn't know that.

    No, the seed that I got looked like Pyro's alpina stuff. I thought it was just not pollenated correctly or something.

    The seed of nelumbifolia and humboldtii are very specialized and look totally different from the seed of the Orchidioides section Utrics. Hybrids where nelumbi and humbo are the seed parent have seed that look just like nelumbi or humbo.


    And Jeff, just as an FYI, nelumbi can self pollinate so I would hold off for either a definitive morphological phenotype or a distinct bloom before you absolutely label the offspring from your cross as the hybrid.

    Yeah, I wasn't gonna label it for sure yet. I just wanna see the leaves first -- they should look different.

    One would think but I have a suspicion that one or the other parent will be more dominant than the other in this case. If longi is the dominant one then it ought to be obvious that it is a hybrid but if nelumbi is the dominant one then you will likely have to waif for the bloom.

    It is a real pain, I have 3 crosses, one of which is nearing 4 years old, and I am still waiting for confirmation by bloom... Enough to drive you nuts I tell you.

    My U. campbelliana seed arrived today. While they are small, they aren't all THAT tiny. I've worked with much smaller Drosera seed.

    The picture isn't the best, but it gives an idea about their size.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
