Can't wait for your research, Kelly.  What a fascinating possibility 
John raises.  I'm ready to be the experimenter for the future.  With 
my next cross probably.

I don't know if the seedlings I have now will give us any definitive 
answer, but should offer likelihoods, I think.  The first cross (on 
Sky Blue Pink) was from Lavender Icicle, the second from Titan's 
Glory -- pretty different cvs.  They should have been very close 
together, because I always cross on a newly opened flower.  And I 
always cross all three lips.

Hmmm...  I can imagine all sorts of variables on this experiment:  
all three by one, then the other; each lip a different 
pollination...  I'll probably try to go for very different 
pollinators, but on the same bloom, since my experience last year -- 
my first pollen-daubing -- I often crossed several flowers on one 
stem, but only the top (terminal?) bloom ever took the cross.  Think 
I'll try three crosses, one on each lip.  Stay tuned.

Whidbey Island, WA, where it's still cold and the TB season is about 
half over.  Handy for experiments.
