Seeds?

Post by liisa8800 »

Maybe. I would wait until the fruit ripens. I don't know what they look like ripe on that species!

It will dry up and fall off in a couple of days if it is not developing seeds, you will know soon.

I don't think G. baldianum fuit ever goes red, but ripe fruit will split open to reveal the seeds so there won't be any doubt.

I have fruits on my Gymnocalycium quehlianum all the time. They ripen to yellow and then fall off after 30 days or so, but so far no seeds. Maybe I need two Gymno's to bloom in close proximity at the same time?

Yes you will need two genetically different gymnocalyciums to cross pollinate. I got my first gymno seeds last summer on my mesopotamicum which was crossed with my baldianum now I have about 10 seedlings growing from a pod of about 30 seeds.

I have died and will die.
It's all right.

They don't have to be different species to pollinate, as long as they're not clones. They have to have grown from different seeds.
