    hi chris. well, all i did was take a tooth pick, gather the pollen grains located at the front of flower, and repeatly inset intoo the mouth, aiming toward the yellow stem stickin g from bottom of flower. Not too hard, or the flower will fall off, casuing no seeds. After a sucessful polli
    ation, the flower will fall off (not brown or anything, literally fall off) and the base will swell, and inabout a couple of days, a seed pod would have formed. Wait till the pod opens to collect seeds
