I have H. striatum var. crocatum about to bloom.  Anybody want to swap pollen?

H. teyucuarensis. My labels have evolved over the years (I started 
out by only putting the name of the plant on the label and nothing 
else), so all I have on the label is BX 11/16/01 item #11. When I 
first read your message, I thought mine was the same cross since your 
description sounds kind of like what I'm seeing. However, mine has 
been grown outside all year round and it's still quite cool here 
especially at night. I didn't write down who the seeds came from. 
Anyway, I like the result as well. I'll try to get a photo on the 
wiki, too.
