A pale yellow seedling. I've been ripping open flowers looking for pollen, and most of the pale yellow do not have pollen! It's said that Adeniums are headed toward being male/female plants.

I believe this one is named "Dream of Yellow" or something like that. One very definite yellow is named "Yellow Earth" but I've never seen a grafted plant for sale.

I can find pollen if it's there. I don't have a camera that will take enough of a close-up to show you where it is, and what pollen looks like. It's more of a gray lumpy stuff, not the pretty, fluffy yellow that we're used to. Hmm, I'll go google and see if there is something there----

Aha! David Clulow! He has been growing these plants for many years. He must be British, he sends plants to a seller in England from where he lives in Venezuela The second slide show that Mike's link will take you to is by the expert.

OK, I'll be pollinating next week, the 20th and 21st, First quarter Moon in Libra. I hope lots of my "Fragrant" plants will have good blossoms.

Thanks Mike!

Thanks for all compliments! I am doing some pollinating today and tomorrow. Goodbye pretty flowers! The pollen donators ge chopped off the plant and ripped open(!!), booo. And the ladies, pod parent as they say, gets rather split open in sad ways. Contrary to how Mr. Clulow does it, I split the petals apart to the base, and then wrap them back up with thin strips of masking tape. He just cuts them off. With only 10 to 20% success rate, maybe his dry out or something.

I won't know if I am successful for about two weeks.

Other than that, one plant has little pods that aren't growing/developing. Owell!
