Microwaving pollen

Dear All,

To keep you updated, here is a recent picture of the seedlings of Albuca clanwilliamigloria grown from seed which was produced by selfing my one and only bulb with its own microwaved pollen. I combined the advice I got from several people from this list and other people and it worked, thank you very much again.
I donated some of this seed to both the US and EU seed exchange. If you have not sown it by now (in the northern hemisphere) don’t and keep it until October. If you did, how is yours doing?
I am even more pleased with this germination because the mother bulb has not sprouted for this season. This does not necessarily mean it is dead. Albuca clanwilliamigloria comes from a dry climate and is known for skipping a season or two. So it makes sense to have a large potful of bulbs to have at least some bulbs flowering every year in the future.

Thank you again for your precise information 

Bye for now
