Pinus ayacahuite pollination

I have several female flowers on my various clones of Pinus ayacahuite but no experience in determining at what point they would be pollen receptive. Since I didn't have male ayacahuite cones I gave most a "dusting" of Pinus stylesii pollen as it should be compatable. Pinus strobus will begin dispersing pollen soon.

Found three cones on my Abies x koreocarpa yesterday. I hope to find some pollen elsewhere. When the scales open up is that when it will become receptive?

Thanks Resin,

"When the scales open up is that when it will become receptive?"

Yep. Looks like you're a mite too late with that Abies already, the scales have already closed up again.

That's a slightly odd cone there, it is in the position normal for a pollen cone, rather than erect on top of the branch as usual for a seed cone. Something that I see occasionally on Abies.

Here's update on one of the better examples. Looking forward to a huge cone crop in 2015! lol
