great job I just put the pollen in the right place got the pollen from the right place NOW what happens next??? does everything fall off except the peduncle or what??? Not as confused now thanks but still fuzzy...LOL
Irish, usually the corolla hangs on for a few days, then falls off. Depending on the variety whether or not the calyx falls off. You should be able to see the seed pod starting to grow and in a few weeks, it gets huge like a pod of okra. I'll try to remember the camera tomorrow and take some more photos of the seed pods.
I have been trying to grow brugs from seed without a lot of success but brought some cuttings home from Trinidad and ALL of them have taken - poppy your picture was very helpful for when they eventually get big enough to flower, thanks a lot!
