Well done on getting those green cuttings to grow, cestrum....they have a little hydroponic type grower in Europe, that is catching on for bulk cuttings...just little green pieces and they grow like weeds...

Where to start......well I used the RFP pollen on the PP flower early this can hardly see the stigma for pollen.
I didn't need to wet the stigma, was hand didn't shake, but it will when I try to collect the's very warm now so I will wait until it gets cooler...

I will use Bruce's Pink pollen for the next one, there will be some more flowers opening soon...the current ones didn't have any pollen this morning.....I want to keep the they are the 2 obvious choices as pollen donors......but with the pollen, as the popular consensus says dust everything, that's what I will do..

I am so relieved that it got to mature....unfortunately all of the new growth coming from the fasciated part is the fasciation in this particular instance is only temporary.... taking a cutting would only produce
normal growth. I will just leave it to grow as the rest of PP is growing...but I will keep an eye on it.

Last year when my Daphne grew a fasciated bit, I cut it off and brought it inside because it was a massive flower time I'll leave it to grow.
