    Default Another cross attempt :)

    Pollen Parent:
    C. Chocolate Drop 'Kodama' AM/AOS


    Pod Parent:
    C. Hawaiian Wedding Song 'Virgin'


    I'm not even sure if this cross will work out. But thats part of the fun.
    We will find out in 5-6 years maybe lol.

    A white Chocolate Drop would be cool, or a Chocolate Drop as big as the Hawaiian Wedding Song.

    It looks like the pollination did not work. The pod is starting to turn yellow.
    I will try again next time
