Hi Mary and all,
comment from Mary Chastain last week took a while to penetrate.

have over 100 at present that show almost no
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?
