Nobilis with a few MP flowers
« on: January 21, 2015, 12:07:12 »
hi,
 i have a nobilis that is flowering for the first time for me. I bought it as an offset 4 years ago.
To my surprise it has a few MP flowers. I have selfed the MP flowers with the hope that the next generation might have increased number of MP flowers. any hope you reckon?

Hi Michael, a nice start to the year!
i had similar with one of my caulescens, i put the MP pollen back over all the flowers
interestingly, the non-MP flower berries had single seeds, but the MP flowers had large berries with 3-4 seeds
fingers crossed!
cheers kym

Lovely, shows me what I can expect from my Nobilis offset, although my plant seems to want to produce offsets first. 
I received it as a gift in Sept of 2011, by December of 2012 it had produced an offset, September of 2013 saw 3 offsets in total.  April 2014 there were 6 offsets and the same today.

How old was your Nobilis offset when you got it Michael?

Thanks Kym and Linda.

Hi Diane, I am not  sure how old the offset was when I bought it but if I recall correctly it had about 6 short leaves. I don't think it was taken off the parent that long. It didn't grow much for the first 2 years.
