Here's what I seem to have learned about pollinating Anubias. You need two spadix and the spathes need to open within 2 or 3 days of each other. The reason for that is because the pistil and pollen are not functional at the same time. So if Buces re the same, it might be possible, but not for me at the moment. I wonder if anyone is doing any work on cloning.
Thanks for the info Izzy. The only thing I've heard is that fungus isn't all that uncommon going from submerged to emersed. Jes checked it out and it seems a dunk for a day or two will fix that. I've heard of one person losing their entire Buce collection to bugs, but that was because they added a jewel orchid. Is the quarantining necessary? Probably not. On the other hand my emersed collection gets pricier with each new plant. I lose nothing by QTing, even if it is probably pointless. It beats the worst case scenario aka the stoke I give myself while rampaging over the loss of it all. These far, far away plants I had no clue which way they were grown. Normally when I know they were submerged I just throw them in.
