Re: CULT: Pod setting

Interesting thought, but I have never found it to be the case. *Most" of the
crosses that do not take for me
I can predict in advance. I either push it by using old or quite possibly
damp pollen, or using a stigmatic lip
that has little or no moisture present. I sometimes let myself be fooled
into thinking that the light bouncing
off the lip is moisture rather than just the surface 'finish' of the
stigmatic tissue. If I could only discipline myself
to use only fresh, dry, fluffy pollen and moist stigmas I think I would get
a much higher percentage of takes.
