Postby blakplanter » Thu Aug 04, 2005 3:49 am

I Know that there the male part that how some kind of powder, and that has to land on the female part. How do you do that by hand?

P.S simple terms please

Yup, take pollen grains with a little soft brush and put on the stigma.

pollen being the 'powder' you refer to and the stigma being the female 'landing platform' for the powder...

I am trying to mix this with a rose.

I Have all "bred" it with itself. t has both male and female parts.

I doesn't seem like rose have stigmas or the other part.

Your specimen, it looks like a member of Amaryllidaceae... Please correct me if I was wrong, I am not a botanist, it was like 10 years ago when I studied plants :)

Here I edit your image link, so everyone can see it ;)

I don't think you could hybridize it with rose (Rosaceae) because they are from different families, which you have to consider the reproductive system compatibility. There is such a reproductive barrier to prevent fertilization between different species from different genera and upper categories. This limitation not only in plants but also in animals. But there could be an exception here and there, but, still, their offspring will be sterile. In this case, you will not get any seeds.
