    If you want to try pollinating it, take a toothpick, and, if you don't mind ruining the flower, tear off the bottom half of the flower. You'll see the apron-like stigma, and right behind it are the stamens. Take the toothpick, swipe the pollen off the stamens, and deposit it on the stigma. If you're like me and hate ruining the flowers, a much harder route is to carefully insert the toothpick down the mouth and swipe it across the stamens behind the stigma, then carefully pull it back and deposit the pollen. Not all species are self-fertile, and there seems to be an odd timing issue for some, but if you're lucky it may work.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
