    Default My first seed pod

    I recently decided to try my hand at hybridizing. I made several crosses using Burrageara Living Fire as both pod parent and pollen parent...none took! That hybrid might well be end-of-line breeding. Not to be deterred, I crosses my Odontonia Yellow Parade (female) with Wilsonara Tigersette and there now appears to be a pod forming. Now for the waiting game! Here are the parents and pod.

    That should be a really interesting cross!

    It hasn't been registered Todd, so go for it! Don't forget our Minister of Silly Flasking, if you're not interested in flasking it yourself...I don't know if he's done any in the Onc alliance.

    Thats gonna be one cool looking plant. Will the colors mix, will one coor be dominant over the other, or will the colors be shared? How long will it take before we know?

    I may be old and grey before I know...oh wait, I'm already going grey...guess I'll just be old! LOL! Honestly, I have no idea...they say the pod parent is usually the more dominant so I'm hoping yellow with pink pattern
