my older VFTs...

by quartzite » Sun May 27, 2018 5:44 pm

Good Morning Everybody...these are my older VFTs...the one the left and background of the pics (with multiple flower stalks) is the pinnacle...interestingly the pinnacle is only 1 plant...the B-52 to the right and foreground is my B-52...that plant is actually 2 separate B-52 plants...the large flower stalk was produced by the smaller VFT and larger has produced only smaller plant stalks...both of the B-52s were planted close to each other and I am wondering (if its even possible) if they fused together to form 1 plant...btw, the pots are 6 in net pots...

Hi Melle,

this past sunday, i harvested the seeds...i have over 100 seeds that I collected from the pinnacle and the B-52...some of those flowers i cross pollinated the pinnacle and the B-52...i'll be planting the on sunday or monday of next week...i hope they grow...i might save some of the remaining seeds...i plan to store them in black 35mm film containers with a cobalt chloride free hydrated silica packet inside...

Ah, the versatility of plastic film containers. Something the young kids won't know...

Congratulations on the harvest. Did you keep track of which seeds came from the cross-pollinated flowers?

Hi Schmeg...thank you...i hope they'll grow...i know you're going to pull my ear but i didn't keep track of the seeds...i had a ton of flower stalks from the pinnacle VFT and that one had the most seeds...the B-52 really didn't make that much seed despite it being a stronger plant... :? ...maybe next year...i bought the empty plastic film containers from Amazon...I have used them in the past to store 420 and spice seeds...so i assume they're good for VFT seeds too...i guess that's the down side of cel and digital cams...
