    Pollinating?

    I am not sure where to apply the pollen to do some crosses and selfing
    I have no problem getting pollen by removing some of the petals.
    Is this the area where it is applied? I have searched for information but have not found anything useful. The pinned link pick doesn’t seem to work anymore. I will be using the blackened toothpick teck.


    Thanks
    Stephen

    you know that little flap-thingy that moves when you probe around in the flower during pollination?
    well the outside of that flappy thing is where you pollinate. The reason why it moves out like that is because it doesn't want to be self-pollinated.

    I'm pretty sure that I'm right, because that's what works for me and that's what I've read, but because of my limited knowledge in pings if I'm wrong please correct me.

    So, yeah, I'm pretty sure that that's where you should apply the pollen.
