Is this the winter growing one or the summer growing one Anders?  As 
Bill Dijk has unmatched clones of these of the winter ones I know for 
sure, so probably also for the summer ones.  However, unrelated clones 
are only one step in getting seeds.  For the winter ones the temperature 
should stay above 15ยบ C at all times.  Which is why in Spain they have 
no problem at all in getting seed.

Our last winter I did get seed setting on my Paramongia weberbauerii.  I 
did the tricks of microwaving and also of unrelated pollen.  At that 
stage had not known about the temperature problem, so in the end the 
seed pods aborted.

So far don't know about how my summer ones will go.

Just wonder if anybody knows if his clones are the same as Bill Dijk?The reason for asking is that I know you need two different ones if you want to succeed pollinating them.Regards Anders B.
