I've tried it and didn't have much luck and gave up. I ended up buying seeds instead. But I'm determined to try again this year. I'm sure interested in it.

My seed efforts are coming up green in their tray! I love new seedlings!
I am definitely a pollen dabber.

Seedling are my favorite thing about daylilies. Plant about 2500 every year and can bloom most in nine months. This was one of my favorites tha bloomed this pass season. LILLIAN'S DORA SWANSON X CRAZY IVAN.

There is nothing like waking up in the morning to see new flowers blooming for the very first time ! I plant my seeds outside in the fall. Unlike Spunky1, it takes mine two years from seed to bloom. It is surely worth the wait though. My avatar is one of my seedlings from last summer.

and Spunky, what a nice edge. I love how it almost just turns into an eye. Is that what you would call that ? It is very unique.

Keyi,
Nice photo of your seedlings growing.
Growing daylilies from crossed seed is fun.
You never know what you will get.
Here is one of my favorite crossed seedling blooms from 2009.

Poppy, What a nice seedling and a poly, too! What percentage of the time does it poly? Who are the parents? I really like it!

Poppy, I hope it performs well for you this summer. It is an eye catcher, especially when it polys.

Very nice seedling Poppy, really like the way the eye extends to the sepals.
I think that would be an eye in the above seedling. Although the eye it is not round as the AHS defines an eye I don't know what else you would call it.
This is another eyed thing I though was nice for a first year bloom.

Poppy beautiful seedling. Spunky has been a major inspiration to many of us with his endeavors. I wake up everyday in the summer and run around the yard checking new blooms. Love it that time of day. This year I am putting up a small 10 x 16 greenhouse for a lot of EV's and some raised beds for others. I should have a lot of pollen dabbing going on. I have about 500 seedlings and it will be my first year at this.

Wow, spunky, those are both gorgeous. I especially like the second one.
I love the polymerous one too. All my seedling bloom pics are on a disc around here somewhere. I don't have any on the computer at the moment... Crying

Oh MY gosh I am so impressed. But also confused a little, can we go through this step by step?

So you take 2 lilies that you like, isolate them, do the whole making whoopie with the pollen and stuff, then what? That is where I get lost. This is pretty bad since I am in a horticulture program here at a local college. Wait! I am going over my seed propagation section in my head. Ok, so you mix the pollen, then let those flowers make seed pods and then plant those seeds and see what you get the next year right?

I WANT TO TRY THIS!!!!!!

A tutorial forum would be awesome with step by step images, pleeeaasseee!

Susan, you do not mix the pollen, you take the pollen from one plant and put it on the pistil of another plant then hopefully a seed pod will develop. I think where your located it will take at least two years to bloom a daylily from seed unless you have a greenhouse.

Thanks for the link. Does that mean I shouldn't ask any more dumb questions? Usually when I am given a link that is what someone is trying to nicely say. LOL
