Hello Manders.

I have very few pollen from a golden peristome form. I have loads more in the fridge but not sure if you would like to try with that. 

The plant put out another ( the 4th!!! ) spike and i will have more fresh pollen in about a month.

Let me know!

Andrew

and I think this is a male, so looks like i can cross my own plants soon... (

 

EDIT:  On second thoughts I think it's another female, maybe...

I dont know the sex of the last one, and i have a fourth clone which has never flowered yet so one of those two should be male. The wistuba one i sold off last year was a male and a prolific flowerer but i needed the space...

I think i read in one of charles clarkes books the split is typically 50%. maybe we have learnt more since then?

i have several seed grown boschianas and so far they have all been male... :(

Both my ventricosa clones turned out to be female, if anyone has a male clone and wants to swap cuttings...
