My H. minor var pilosa plant is sending up a flower stalk. None of my other Heliamphora are in flower at the moment. Should I try to collect pollen? Am I (hypothetically) able to pollinate the same plants next flower stalk? Do they usually send up multiple flowers? Any info would be great! I'll do my own research as well.
Very nice ! Like i said, welcome to the flowering pilosa club !
Its a very rare event.
2016 is the pilosa spreading year! I will send a lot of divisions soon, from many different clones, everywhere in Canada and europe.
Yes you should collect pollen and use it on the next flower(s). Pilosa seeds are gold nuggets. You can sell them at gold price. The information about flowering pilosa is inexistant on internet, you will only find the information i shared myself on many medias. We are pioneers in the domain
Once again, congrats ! Pretty stunning picture too, thanks for sharing.
Thanks Francois. You sure know how to make a plant grower feel special! Haha. I will certainly try to collect pollen. It's such a cool plant, it would be very interesting to see what traits Wistuba's pilosa x self would produce!
