Because pod set is erratic here, I may attempt a cross on every bloom on a stalk. I think the most pods per stalk has been 5. I remember at least one with two pods on the terminal socket.

Receptiveness of stigmatic lip seems to vary among cultivars - some are sticky as soon as the falls drop, others a bit later. Some stay receptive longer than others. Generally, the fresher the better.

<1) how many seed pods
can you produce on one stalk? Do you ever get (or even attempt) more than one seed pod per socket? Is there any apical dominance effect (a seed pod at the
top inhibiting lower seed pod development)?

2) how soon and how long after
opening is the stigmatic lip receptive?  I know this will depend on
conditions, but is there a general rule?
