Just a little point , but it could make the difference between success and failure .
Be careful to protect the stigma once exposed from drying out by wind and heat .
It is good to keep the plant in a cool humid space , I use a very fine mist spray on the stigma`s during the day during pollination time.
Do this about a half hour or so BEFORE you pollinate.
Thanks for sharing Derek .
Buy the way Derek , I reaped 3 seeds  off my 2014 pollination of our Ice Giant x Hirao .
To my delight they were unpigmented but yesterday I noticed slight pigmentation on the second leaf of 1 seedling , the other
2 are still showing no signs of pigment .
What pollens have you taken to your beautiful plant  ?

Regards,
             Lionel.

Hi Lionel

What was the result of 'I will pollinate a few times morning and evening with the last pollen from " Angelica " 2011 flowering season.                                       
                                      Kei River Mouth Nobilis !' posted on 04/08/2012

or are you still waiting for the result to flower
Andre

Hello Andre ,
                    It took a year for seed set therefore the seedlings will be 2 years old .
I have seen the seedlings somewhere but cannot remember ..... sometimes that is a good thing .
Nobilis can take + 8 years to flower , but with the Miniata pollen lets hope it is soon .

These are pics of ( Nobilis x Miniata ) x Miniata interspecs , our Susan Series .... Some of our best Interspecs .
You can see the high flower count from the Nobilis coming through .
This is what inspired me to put Angelica onto this Pink Nobilis ...
Angelica`s Mother and the second pollen parent in our Susan series are the same plant .
I will probably have to go with Miniata on to these Fi`s , to get the " open " flowers of our Susan Series

Wow Lionel, what can I say. They are breathtaking.

Lionel -
I have used Hirao # 5 and Hirao broad petal pollen from plants that I purchased from Shige. I have high hopes...only time will tell.

Before this goes off the board .
This is a good example of how different the individual seeds from the same crossing can be .
The likeness is also obvious .
We only have  4 seedlings of the original batch of seeds .
Truly .... there are infinite possible outcomes to look forward to in the future .
We have only just begun .
Regards,
             Lionel.
