'Annie Rex'
« on: August 22, 2007, 09:12:30 »
Hi there,

This is an image of a plant Pieter found at a nursery in Johannesburg 2 years ago. The end result is something like 'Frats' and 'Bart Simpson'. The name we gave it is a  play on words from anorexia. Last year it did not flower so we are delighted to see that it was not just a once off flowering.

Looks like there are pollen sacs on some tepals, is that correct?

Thanks Gideon, i will post a picture once its fully openned.

Bunseng, the pollen sacs and stamen develop normally and are not fussed to the tepals.

One thing we waiting to see is if the flowers are multipetaled again. In 2005 when it flowered, each flower had 8 stamen.

Cheers,

From what I can make from the photo I see no viable stigma tips, just anthers. Perhaps Sperm Bank would be a better name.

Hi Eugene and Roger.

Eugene, when it flowered in 2005, we were lucky enough to be given pollen from James and Connie's 'Frats' to use. From that we got approximately 30 seedling. I am not sure what to do this year with it, but have this horrible idea to try find a narrow petalled yellow and start down a very long road.

Roger, the pictutre I posted is of the developing bud, this is what it looked like in 2005.

The "flower" count seems to be a bit higher this year and we will post an updated picture when its fully open.

All the best,

I stand corrected
What about going down the multitepal road - be interesting to see what that delivers.
I personally would not breed out the anthocyanin in the flower parts - thats part of its alure.
Thanks for the photo!

Hi Roger,

The multipetal route sounds greeat, but i have no idea how i would even begin. What we will do is try self pollinating a flower or two this year. The other option i guess is to beg or borrow some pollen from a nice multipetal. hint hint

And a pleasure for the photo.



Gideon,

Annie Rex is the proud mother of about 30 seedling so far. I will be potting them out as soon as i have found a space for them. Space is a major problem for us, in total we have abput 50 sqm of clivia area, including the courtyard, patio and car port.

Annie also has two very small offsets, and i will keep you in mind when we remove them in a year or two.

Cheers

Thought I'd posted this message but it disappeared into the ether ...
Someone out ther MUST have some multitepal pollen for you in exchange for seeds from a breeding line of multi-anthered Fratsses in time.
Otherwise try putting pollen of keeled tepals to it. Mine are slow this year.
Regards
Roger
