    Mach,
    Great alpina! Thanks for sharing. Is it the same plant as the one on the 1st page? (left side)

    The one on the left has no creases in her skirt.
    All the best,
    Ron

    yes same plant. Might be season related (had aphids a few months back on the bud) or might be because I am trying to make hybrid with U. nelumbifoia and have already pollinated the flower.

    How long ago? I usually see the flower fall off fairly quickly after a successful pollination. When it doesn't take, the flower acts like nothing happened. I haven't been able to make any hybrids with my two asplundii from Chiwinda, Ecuador. Either it doesn't take or if it does, the seeds are sterile. I've also tried to pollinate a few w/ U. nephrophylla pollen - won't work on any of the larger flowers. I've been told the pollen tubes aren't large enough.

    If you want a satellite location to grow some of those seeds, let me know ...

    Completely agree. I was floored when my 'P-Moon' flowered - the simple yellow patch surrounded by ivory everywhere really grabbed me - much more than I anticipated.

    Have dabbed pollent on stigma flap two times now. Was guessing it might not ave taken. Have seen similar things with the nelumbifolia flowers fade quickly if pollination successful. Not seein it with the alpinia flowers. Otoh the alpinia has not dopped pollen either. So dunno. Guessing it is behaving like a heli in there's of non syncronized pollen and stigma receptivity. Stigma was sticky and glistening....

    Are they large flowers? They look massive in the pics.
