Confusion

rmbill(6a)August 11, 2011

This flower was looking pretty good and then a rain storm came along and ruined it. It has lots of buds so I'm anxious to see what it will be when it is all the way opened. This is one of the cuttings that I got from Eddie Dwayne the fall of 2009. He has some great stuff. I hope he sells some more cuttings this fall.

Wow Bill, that is a Big bloom, with whiskers too it looks like. *g* how long do you think it'll take to open fully?

The flower never opened all of the way. I cut the ruined bud open and I think I counted 5 layers of flower. I don't really know what I am looking for. The center was just a wad. It had a nice smell but not very strong but of course this was in the middle of the day not in the evening when they smell the strongest. It should have lots of blossoms in a week or so. I will be sure and post a fully opened flower.

That would be neat but I don't really know anything about hybridizing. I got some pollen fron the BGI bank so I will try that. I have to study up on that stuff. If things go like they are supposed to, I'll try my hand at gathering some pollen for the bank. I have several plants that some might want to try. How in the world would you gather pollen from a plant this gnarly, though?

I know this is one I certainly really like, even though I don't know one thing about collecting pollen or any of that. LoL
