Were you able to pollinate anything this year?Sent from my iPhone using Home BrewFirst I
apologize for the late reply. I got some pollen from Nagmay and I tried to pollinate my plants,
but I did not n...

Yep. Those flowers are now in a bag dropping pollen (hopefully). If it goes well, I should be
able to offer it to those on my list soon. You all still have plants in the burr stage,

Something that may be of interest: is precisely the reason why I think it is so important for

You may not have done anything wrong. From what I've noticed you would need about 200 or so
seeds at a 10 to 15% germination rate, to get maybe 3-4 plants that are hardy.I hope to be able
to get a mal...

I have no surviving seedlings, but the Neomexicana that I grow from rhizomes as well as the
Smooth Cone that I grew from cutting are doing well. I will have to do things differently next
time. I think...

Lot of pages to read though so forgive me if I've missed something. One of the problems with
