Re: Albuca spiralis

'B' is the ovary. The top of 'A' is where you stick your pollen. Yes, I realised I mixed up the terminology a bit, thank you! After reading Pollination function transferred: modified tepals of Albuca (Hyacinthaceae) serve as secondary stigmas I just hope I didn't waste all the pollen applying it di...

Re: Albuca spiralis

Reviving an oldish thread, my A. spiralis is in flower for some time already, but only now I realised I could actually pollinate it as it's supposed to be self-fertile. Being a good bee, I found the pollen, but have slight doubts which part of the flower is the pistil! Is it (A), or (B) on the photo...

Re: An old friend rewards me today

Cracking plant. I do love the powdery types. Me too, up until their very first repotting when I ruin them completely and push to the far end of the shelf to never look at them again. Lol! I find I can usually do minimal damage by going underneath the leaves and holding the stem but still leaves som...

Re: More bulbine

I even considered joining SABG just to find one, but I didn't see them on the last year's swap list and figured out it'll be a stretch. The hunt continues! The list changes year to year. It all depends on what has been donated that year by members. That's crystal clear, there just wasn't many Bulbi...
