I have a plant of T. pamelae with a flower spike and a friend has brought his to my place in order to cross pollinate these. The spike on both these plants have been out for almost three months without sign of any flower to date.
Questions: Does anyone know how long before the flowers make an appearance? Will the mother plants pup at this stage? We are in Sydney and winter has set in, will the lower temperatures hamper the possibility of getting flowers or pups for that matter?
I am told these plants only pup or have grass pups at a young age. Is this true? I did have one pup just before the spike presented but that rotted off (really made me cross).
What else can anyone tell me about this plant? I think I need all the help I can get.
If we are successful in cross pollinating these plants seed will be avilable. I do not sell my plants or seed.
