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: 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
