I am just starting to cross plants. I successfully pollinated a plain water plant with pollen from a plain tribarrel cactus - trying to get seeds for a plain prickly cactus. The result? Plain poppies seeds. (This was per the charts on Stratics, which stated I should have gotten a prickly cactus from this pairing.) I looked again at the Stratics webpage on plant crossing, thinking that perhaps I needed to pollinate the tribarrel cactus from the water plant - but it does not say anything about the 'direction' of the pollination. When I looked up what it takes to get poppies, it does not list either the tribarrel cactus or the water plant as a parent. I have heard from a couple of others that plant crossing is broken and, they say, has been for a year. Help?
