    Default latest pollination of forbesii results so far

    Just wanted to share the result of the latest pollination of forbesii I carried out in the end of November 2009.
    The seed plant is quite light-colored as you can see in the photo, and the pollen donor a lot darker with wider petals and sepals.

    Last year I sowed 8 flasks with seeds produced by self-pollination of the plant in the photo, and the plantlets are growing really well as you can see.


    Regards to all from Brazil.

    Just curious, how is that plant growing now? The number of pods on that plant is enormous! I have had some plants respond poorly the next year when holding a large number of pods.
