This is a discussion on latest pollination of forbesii results so far within the Breeding & Hybridization forums, part of the Orchid Propagation category; Just wanted to share the result of the latest pollination of forbesii I carried out ...
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.
That is so cool!!
Congratulations! Those look great!!
Thank you all.
Wow, good job!
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.
Do you use sterile gloves box for sowing?
WOW! Lots of babies!!!!!! And the parents are very pretty! Can you please share some hints about the sowing process?!?!?!
