    Pollination - How long does it take?

    I recently pollinated three of my Pinguicula. All of these plants are genetically unique, so I am hopeful. How long should it take to notice a change, and what exactly will happen to the flower? What will I notice if the pollination was a success?

    I am guessing that the flower will shrivel and a bulb will form, but I am not sure. I have only seen photos of pollination after seed formed.

    The flower will wither but the stalk will not as they do when the flowers go unpollinated. The ovary will swell notably if the pollination was successful.
