CULT: Seed Pod Success?
> I'm just making my first stab at hybridyzing this year. I didn't have any
> major plan for Pod Parent or Pollen Parent. I just wanted to see if I could
> make it happen.
> Well, yesterday I pulled tags off of about 16 failed crosses leaving 4
> possible pods. I fiqure this is about a 20% percent success rate. Does
> anyone know if this is normal, low or what?
> I still have a little time left to pollinate and would like to know what I
> might be doing wrong (if anything). I have several books and have been
> following the directions as best I could. One thing that I though might be a
> possibility is that we have been having hot weather here (in the high 80's).
> My irises are blooming about 3 weeks later than usual due to El Nino and
> months of gloomy, rainy weather.
> Thanks for any help.
