Questions on Neo propagation
Several months back I found 2 full seed pods on one of my neos. I removed them, squashed out the seeds and planted them in a container. About a week later I had hundreds of small plants.
Encouraged by this result I madly rushed around exchanging pollen on every neo flower in sight.
I then read several postings on this forum, mainly by Lisa, on what I should be doing. (I took hdd's advice and printed out this information for future reference. Much better than any other info I have read on the subject.) For the last fortnight I have been following this informed advice. Now the centres of my flowering neos are starting to look like pincushions with all the little plastic tags sticking up.
This brings up my first question. Does it matter how many flowers on the one neo I treat or should I only do a few?
Also with watering does it matter if the wells of the treated plants are filled with water while the seeds are being formed?
We had a summer storm last night which filled the wells. I emptied the water out this morning so the flowers would be dry for me to work on tomorrow? Have I done the right thing here?
