    Excellent Ian. People always have question on how to do this. Now they can see how it's done step-by-step.

    I am so glad you guys are finding it helpful! Was a bit confusing for me at first until Joseph Clemens mentioned ripping open the flower. I'm pleased I could actually get footage of the process, since I don't think any other exists! I know there are pictures of the flower parts, and those are very helpful also.

    I have tried this method of pollination before on couple of my Mexican pings. Never worked unfortunately. Must have been doing something wrong. Also tore the part of he flower off like in the video and used toothpick as suggested by Joseph. I wonder if my failure was due to the fact that I was trying to crosspolinate the hybrids?

    In addition If I remember correctly it was suggested waiting three days after the flower opens to pollinate so that It has enough time to develop the pollen. Does this sound reasonable?
    Is there a point in flowers life when it is too late for pollination (before it shrivels up and dies obviously)?

    Thanks
