Pollination Comments
POLLINATION: By Hand Length of time for fertilization to register: it may require a week or more and visual evidence of growth of the ovary takes a few weeks. A63-479 0
POLLINATION: By the Phases of the Moon According to the seers the best hybridizing days are: two days before the first quarter, or, one day before the last quarter, or, on the full moon; F80-158; for a refutation of this theory, see MOON PHASES. 0
POLLINATION: Mimicry Floral deception in many amazing forms is demonstrated, food fraud mechanisms, pseudo-copulation, etc., refer to SA87-18 0
POLLINATION: Of Cattleyas The how-to-do-it in detail and with colored illustrations for each step, refer to A80-1349 0
POLLINATION: Of Paphiopedilums Surprisingly, few observations of natural pollination have ever been made; some hypotheses based on observations of syrphid flies in Florida presented; refer to A82-1057 0
POLLINATION: Simultaneous Several pollens applied at the same time would theoretically result in progeny representative of all; possibly some or all would be incompatible, and with un uncertain progeny; it would be unethical to register haphazard hybrids. F72-177When diploid and tetraploid pollens are placed on the same flower,the operation is effective and the offspring are predominantly triploid. A72-784 0
