These are pics of my G. lobata x G. violacea. I was wondering whether the flowers on this plant are fertile or not? Would they self pollinate?
Thanks :biggrin:

Some plants are selfpollinateable (what is the right term? :D) and I think that for others you have to polinate one plant with pollen from other clone to gain seeds. But which species can be selfpollinated and which one not, I don't know. Anyway I'm not sure if genliseas hybrids can produce viable seeds. Best propagation technique is "leaf" cuttings.
