    Thanks. Hopefully these photos will help clear up where the "parts" of a flower are, since a lot of people are confused on how to pollinate pings. I can take a pic of the anthers later, too.

    Well, the stigma pad seems to have turned kinda more white now, instead of a pinkish color. Plus, it's also shriveling a little bit. I hope that means something good.

    Alright, after a whole lotta trial and error, I've managed to take a relatively ok pic of the anthers. Sorry that it's fuzzy, but it's harder than you might think to take a pic of them.

    If you coat the tip of the toothpic with a black marker, then let it dry before use. It will be much easier to see if you've captured any pollen, which is white or pale yellow, and also to see if you've released it onto the stigma of the female parent.

    So if it I do pollinate it successfully, when should the rest of the corolla fall off? EDIT: Well, the little purple colored part of the ovary between the filaments has turned green, which I'm hoping means that it has been fertilized.

    Yes, if pollination was successful the corolla usually drops away in a couple of days. Unfortunately, successful pollination does not always assure seed, or when seed do form, they may not even then be viable seed.
