Re: Birth of a New Hybrid Musa: Musa sp. aff. aurantiaca (Trebrown seeds) x velutina

If you get one of each species you can split off pups to start separate mats. Short answer on pollen, no you cant. Long answer is some research has shown some positive results.

Re: Agristarts Dwarf Iholena

The only caveat to the above is unless the mutation of the off type is beneficial in some way. Quite a rew of the varieties today are mutations of other varieties.

Re: Genetics question; calculating potential offspring?

Slightly off topic, but Gabe I can only access the male flowers on the donor plant between 8sm and 5pm, can i pollinate in the evening? Or will the male flowers last until morning?
