Thanks :D

Well, the bad news is - the stalk did not forgive me my 180°-bending... :sad:

and the good news - the next one is already emerging :smile: This time I will be more carefully!

So, just have a bit of patience.

Regards

Martin

Hi Martin,

really wonderful "alien" flowers. :tu:

How long do the flowers last?

Have you already been successful with pollinating them, this would be really great?

Best regards,

Dani

Hi Dani,

the flowers last only a week or so, cannot say by now if this is their normal lifespan - or if I had success with pollination :tu:

I will check that soon.

This plant kills me. Tried two more shots now in evening sun. But I never get back to the sharpness of the bud picture (that was already not that sharp...)

Ányway, at least with the good old black background again.

Hi Martin,

i like these pictures with the black background more than the last ones. :wink:

Bye the way, how big are these flowers in diameter?

And i hold my fingers crossed for your successful pollination. :wink:

Best regards,

Dani

Thanks for the wishes, Dani :wink:

Hard to tell what the diameter is. The height is a bit over 3cm, the width depends on how far the antennae spread. Without the appendages (lobes and antennae) only a few mm, maybe three.

Regards

Martin
