    Stylidium debile pollination? how to get seeds

    I have a Stylidium debile flowering and need to know if they are self fertile and how to pollinate it.
    Does anyone have experience with producing seed from this plant?
    Thanks,

    None of mine have ever produced seeds. That's not to say that it can't but it sure isn't like capensis.

    isn't it a trigger plant? you're supposed to get your pollinating apparatus assaulted by the trigger. furthermore, they are like helis where the anthers mature first before the stigma, preventing self pollination. have fun!

    Lighting seems to be the factor. These are older pics but 2 T8s and 2 T12s 8 inches above does the trick

    Mine are all flowering now. I have tried pollinating the flowers, but never got any seed.
    I took a small brush and got some pollen on it and touched it too many different flowers. Repeated every few days with no success.

    My colony is right in front of the south-facing glass doors (just like the ones that elgecko has in his kitchen), as well as 3" below a Growlite. What else do they want?!

    Do they bloom predominantly at one time of the year? i.e. Spring-Summer. I have a nice bunch of them growing outside in my greenhouse and it has gotten tons of light. Just has never flowered last year since I got them. Maybe need to get accustomed to my conditions. And reset its biological clock? Will post pics of my plants later when I get a chance to shoot some. Weather has not been nice outside for me....
