Wow Rick I was not expecting that to bloom for years. Must be Hybrid vigour. Looks pretty impressive. I suppose you have a list as long as your arm for pup requests. Put me down anyhow.

Cheers

WOW very impressive. Do you have anything to pollinate it with?

What a great monster!  Should be interesting to see what the flowers look like.  Those bracts and fuzzy buds look great.

I don't think that this is a cross that I would bother with. These plants are OK as species but the cross doesn't do anything for me.

Hi Rick,

Now that is a serious inflo!  Keep us posted on how it develops.

Cheers, Paul

Hello everybody,

The flower spike turned out nicer than I thought it would; it has taken on a nice pink hue.

Looking good Rick. You should try and pollinate it with something. You never know what monster you could create. Hard to know the status of the flowers with Adrolepsis being female here in Oz and Ursulaea being both. I guess it would be one crazy mixed up flower.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about whether it would have 'perfect' flowers or if it would be male/female.  I can't quite tell from the photo if it has both parts, but I can certainly see lots of pollen.  So I'd say it looks fertile (reaffirming that both species are likely closely aligned...and probably with the Podaechmeas as well).
