Hi Mary and all,
            This comment from Mary Chastain last week took a while to penetrate.
>I get all types of plants from
>ventricosa.  In fact I have over 100 at present that show almost no
>characteristics of ventricosa.
         Ventricosa has always been considered near impossible to use as a pod parent for crosses. This is because it is said to be apomixic, which means it is not pollenated in the ordinary way. I don't know if scientific research has established this or if it is just a legend which has become established. From things I've seen, I am beginning to question it. Has anyone else been trying to make crosses onto ventricosa?
        Mary, do you have any, or could you take some pictures of these seedlings?
