Re: Getting colademononis to accept pollen

Thanks Phil. I don't disagree with any of that. Pretty sure these are not selfed (but you never can be sure!) - I kept the anthers well out of the way of the stigma and have one fruit on the Helm's Neue and two on the Chamaelobivia and they're all looking very nice and plump so hopefully very full o...

Re: Advices request for sowing some species

I think our topsy-turvy weather has tricked it! We had blazing heat followed by cool and rainy weather so it thought it was autumn I think! If it gets hot again I shall have to move it out of the greenhouse or it will fry!

Re: Rebutia heliosa RH291
