    Greetings,

    George, a very pretty site, but since I don't read chinese it got frustrating quick! The website may be helpful when the english version comes online.

    Tamlin, what is the chance that utric pollen may be sensitive to temp/light, like ping pollen? If that is the case, the anthers may not be ripening or the pollen may be inviable if it is ripe. The dissecting scope would solve that mystery pretty quickly.

    BTW, I found a site that sells re-conditioned scopes...the prices aren't too bad ($150 and up) especially if you consider how much we may be spending on plants in a season. Check it out at www.microscopesfromnightingale.com/
    Peace,

    Hi All,

    I browsed around that website, and wasn't able to locate the plant hormone. I found plenty of koi pellets and water pumps tho. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Damon,

    Thanks for that link! I will check it out. I really wish I had the scope I had when I was in college. I did a year long pollen study, and was to receive 4,000.00 in funding from the University for it. The funding fell through, and on completion of the project I returned the scope. My professor was surprised at my honesty. What a dummy I was back then, he couldn't have cared less if I had kept it. What a waste of a years time that was: I was so irked that I never published the results of the study. Well, I guess I learned a lot in more ways than one.

    So when I "get rich" it is now an even race between a new guitar and a dissecting digital microscope. Tough call!

    On the subject of plant growth hormones...

    I found a domestic source for gibberillins that won't cost an arm and a leg. Check out this site...mymegagro.com

    I just ordered some, and I con't wait to see if I can germinate some stubborn utric seed!

    I'll let everyknow how it turns out.

    Peace

    Damon

    efbiosis, this might not be strong enough to germinate seeds. I use 1 ppt (Part Per Thousand). This is quite strong and probably not suitable for aplication on plants so I would suspect the concentrations they are selling are a lot weaker than this.

    Let us know what happens, wonder if it will make plants have larger flowers, now where is my miniata, lets see if i can make the flower even bigger!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
