Me too. Especially Norma. :)

I seem to have a successful Norma X Anakie fruit ripening now and I'll be attempting the reverse cross again tonight as the last one failed due to the flowers opening in the middle of a run of 4 days above 40 degrees here. Hoping for more success on round two with the slightly lower temps, (~32 degrees), as only had a few fruits take last time.

Also forgot to add another pic of a different, Gawler peru plant popping tonight. (same clone). I put it in at a friends place so it's been a bit neglected, (probably why it has so many flowers!). But I'm heading over to attempt pollination tonight anyway.

I don't know what's going on here. This is a neglected PC on it's side that has pupped or budded?

Pretty sure it was always a flower bud.

Well, my fat Pseudo Pedro is progressing -

Will still need some pollen sometime soon - though I'm tempted to try EG's cement trick.

Best year ever! Unfortunantly all of these have got to go real soon, cant see it that well from the pic, but i got a bridgessii,super ped, yowie, kk339 Pedro (From jono years ago ) & a massive scop all flowering right at the same time! Heaps of bees, literally hundreds of bees all over these flowers but not one single fruit.

Was an amazing sight, wasnt there to see them peak as this was taken on the morning of xmas eve by my brother.

Apparently the fragrance emitted by all these flowers was just as impressive as the sight.

Keep an eye out on the sales thread as all of this except the scop has got to be chopped down and dug up soon.

Edit - almost as good as horus's shots.

Make sure you spread that bridgesii around far and wide, its a very special clone :worship:
