Pollinating C. caulescens
« on: April 15, 2014, 21:50:00 »
We have a few of the so-called Botanical Gardens (George) caulescens, a particularly broad leafed  type, however they seldom set seed.  Any ideas would be appreciated as one is just about to open.

Regards, Bridget

Hi Michael, selfing, putting on other caulescens pollen or miniata pollen, all result in zero results.  My other caulescens plants, mostly narrower leafed ones pollinate happily, the local sunbirds visiting or me simply brushing my hand over the flowers giving a good seed set.  The plants produce side shoots happily but it would be nice to be able to produce some seed, especially selfed to retain its good features.

I see. Try putting the plant in high light so that it produces lots of sugar for energy and give it liquid feed. Hopefully it will stimulate the plant to be more fertile.
