I love the color of cyclosecta and it seems to carry over. I haven't seen this cross before. I also have a Laueana flowering. I'm looking at them like "oh, they're here, should I?"

So far so good. Looks like the bud is starting to swell. Hopefully it holds up

Hope it works out. Pirouette has me inspired. I want to make a wild complex hybrid. Couple years from now I hope to cross with gypsicola if it pans out. have some large blue kraken looking plant :lol:

OK, how do you guys do it? I've tried with my Ping and I really can't see any of the structures to reliably do it. I've researched and found some tips, most say remove the petals to se better, but I still cannot. Now that I got my wife a couple Pings, I probably want to try again. But, if I can't see anything, I don't know where to gather or deposit pollen.

Well when you tear the flower pull it gently so the structure is intact. on the underside, you'll see a kind of flap, the stamen/pollen is hiding underneath it. what I ended up doing was taking a pair of tweezers and pulling the stamen off and rubbing the pollen on that flap itself. Topside. I'll tear another flower and see if I can get a macro

Love these forward-looking plans for a purple-blue krakeney plant/flower! Unfortunately both my cyclo and my gigantea are sulky in my conditions, but you know what?! Hybrid-vigor! Cyclo crosses don't seem to pout in my conditions. Look forward to seeing what you come up with!
