Cephalotus pollination pictorial

I had the opportunity to experiment on cephalotus pollination and a fellow grower wanted some pictures. Here you go:


Flowering - let the games begin!



Once a day, when I had a moment to spare, I used a soft small brush to transfer the ripe yellow pollen to a receptive stigma. I dabbed the center and all around the star shape. If you are unsure, dab some more for good measure. The stigma would become receptive between 4-10 days after the pollen ripened.


Voilà!Babies are on the way:-D


And a reminder, do not perform experimental surgery when past one's expiry. This might result in castration.
