Alain, no problem - will do that with pleasure! :D In return you're giving me great advice in sowing the seeds (which I hopefully get this time :twisted: )

Update

Three weeks ago I put pollen of Phal. equestris var. coerulea (blue lip) on Phal. Mini Mark... I know there aren't good chances for that - but I would LOVE to remake Phal. Tricky Woo (H.P. Norton).

That's how it looks like today:

Tricky woo is great! Looks good! Now the wait begins.

You know it's a great forum when you search for "bellina" and it returns this from the server:

Thank's for all your good wishes and Alain for offering his help! :D

That's how the braceana capsule looks like... I'm no expert but it doesn't look good to me :evil:

Mini Mark capsule looks good up to now

I'm no expert, either, Sylvi, but maybe braceana pods look like that. I'm sure the experts will weigh in. Mini Mark looks great. What did you cross it with?

Sylvi, I think that it could be normal. I haven't seen one before, but it still looks pod esque. Could this be a species that takes more time to grow and mature? I just wouldn't give up on it just yet. Ever be an optimist.

Both are looking good. I already have a pod curved like that full of seeds, so that's not a problem as long as it's going on!

Alain, thank you for your estimation! I'll keep an eye on it and update in two or three weeks. Good to know there's still hope ;)

Crossed it with my Phal. equestris var. blue - to hopefully get a Tricky Woo :)

Update

Today I harvested Phal. Mini Mark x equestris coerulea, it started to change color and got a bit softer. I hope I've caught the right moment 8) - Phal. braceana x violacea capsule is still on.
