Pamianthe peruviana

Must be my lucky year. I have a second Pamianthe coming into flower. Shoul be opening by the end of this week. The first bulb now looks quite sad, but I collected the pollen when hopefully it was still OK. It has been in the fridge for a week or so now.

>My photos of a previous flowering are dated 12 March 2013, but it would have been warmer over winter then, in that house. I don't know if this is the same bulb that flowered last time. They have been growing for some years in a north facing window of an unused bedroom. Difficult to find a place for plants that have leaves extending ~30 cms or so below the table the pot is on.

>>I would be surprised if it's self-fertile. As far as I know its relatives - Paramongaia and Worsleya are not.
>>Speaking of Pamianthe I grow it as well but no flowers yet. Just wonder, how should I treat it during winter time here in Denmark, Europe. I cut down the watering as the temperature decrease to about 18 celsius - water it once a week. Here in April, I started watering a lot more, new leaves are coming up. Any suggestions - would artificial light help, or?

>>I have a Paminathe just beginning to flower at present. Online comments suggest this is self-fertile (self-compatible?) but last years flower quickly dried up and collapsed. What did I do wrong?
