    Nice color, Zach. My orange variety (tingabarinum) is putting out multiple spikes. Love this species.

    Excellent! This is the first of many spikes forming. I want to try and pollinate with the pollen from your plant.

    I'll send you some pollen when it is in bloom. Should be soon.

    That's a great color. I had one that was almost lime green. Sadly, it "disappeared" after a show - I think someone nabbed it.

    That is a very nice color form! I've got a few clones of this species but so far all the ones to bloom have been orange, which is okay because I love orange flowers.

    I still have the pollen from last year. Do you think I should wait or use the pollen from last year?

    Thanks! I lucked out with this color I expected the normal darker orange. That's absurd someone took your plant.

    I'm the wrong person to ask. Maybe someone that regularly pollinates can answer.

    Zach, mine are blooming now. Do you want fresh pollen?

    Sure! I tried with the older pollen and the flowers faded immediately but I don't think it worked.
