Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how fertile Hippeastrum x-johnsonii is?  I have a bulb 
of it with a scape about to open.  Nothing else is open, so I'll have to 
use frozen pollen on it.  Eventually I want to try an offset from it 
outdoors in the ground in a very protected spot.

Any guess on whether diploid or tetraploid pollen would be more likely to 
set on x-johnsonii?

Any advice will be appreciated!
