Put some papilio pollen on your lovely Exotic Star and if it takes you will get some very interesting hybrids. I bloomed one from this cross a little over a year ago and I have another bulb from that cross that is huge and should have bloomed last year but still keeps me waiting...☺☺Donna

Thank you Donna. I am thinking what pollen should I put on her. I am sure to pollinate with Papilio and another is H. reticulatum - I'd like to see pink Exotic Star. Haha Dreaming.

Thanks for all comments!

Oh absolutely! Here you are with all that fresh reticulatum pollen!! That would be a great cross if it takes and should yield some gorgeous flowers!! Good luck...I'm sure the papilio will take at the very least☺☺Keep us posted..Donna
