Looking for Streptocarpus pollen

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for streptocarpus pollen for a special strep., I purchased that will be a double flower that is also fragrant. I'm willing to share seeds with potential pollen donor. I have the name of my plant at home. Its a pink flower. Does anyone have any pollen? Thanks

I have Spin Art blooming, but fading. More along the way. I have no fragrant nor doubles. What sort are you looking for?

HI, John,
I cut the Spin Art flower open, but it had no pollen. There's another flower on the way, and I have another plant, so there's hope.
Is there a specific color or shape you are looking for in the pollen parent?

I am looking for a large flower with a smallish plant. Right now be happy with any pollen

I have Neil's Maverick open and will have Remembering John open in a few days. I have not had either of them before, both are still young plants, so I don't know what size they will be. Both flowers are larger. But, both are purple, which seems quite dominant in Streps, and which we already have a lot of.
Your call - wait or take?

I have all I can handle just now, but thanks for offering.
I'll send it as soon as it's ripe.

Hey, John. Happy Holidays.
Did you get seeds? Have they sprouted? I'm really very curious as to what happened.

Hi Carol.

Happy Holidays. I tried the pollen but my plant was infested with bugs and died.
