  Re: Pollinating Cryptocoryne

Dear Dean & Jan

In Cryptocoryninae I saw, male flowers open generally only a day later
than the female flowers are receptive. In Lagenandra ovata and L.
praetermissa cultivated in Zurich and Basle (Switzerland), the whet stigma
of the female flowers are wilting then (Crypros are jsut too small to see
for me, and often whet).

This implies that pollen of at least the same inflorescence is not
accepted in Cryptocoryninae.
