Thanks guys. I think I need to start using a tripod (hate it)... way too shaky on the zoom.

For the purpose of comparing boys and girls, which are separate individuals in this species, here's what the girl flowers look like, before and after pollination. It's actually really easy to tell boys from girls once you've seen them.



The babies look like this (the round leaf is the seed leaf).



And finally here's a recent pic showing the feature I'm selecting for in the offspring... early branching. Apparently it's genetic, or so they say. This is the branchiest individual from that generation (and current preferred parent).
