    It is in the center between the yellow "balls". There is only one of these per flower. You can't see the purple hairy thing (stigma) until the flower completely opens. Make sure you use a permanent marker to color a toothpick black. When the flower opens, use the black end of the toothpick, and stroke up and down on the yellow balls to release the pollen. If there is any pollen left on the flower petals,use the black end of the toothpick to transfer the pollen to the stigma. You should get around 25-60 seeds per flower bud using this method.

    It opened today , whoot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Edit: I tried pollinating it and it's pretty hard, barely any pollen off onto the petals and I was worried that I might snap the stigma.

    2nd Edit: The flower closed, I hope I pollinated it. I couldn't tell if I did, the stigma is too small even with my glasses, I could barely see. For the next flower, Im using a magnifying glass.

    If it closed not long after pollinating it, you most likely succeeded. The stigma is relatively small, but after pollinating several B.liniflora flowers, you will get the hang of it. The flowers will usually stay open for 1-2 days if you don't self-pollinate.

    Question

    Cool, I was worried that stigma make snap off as I was brushing pollen on it. How can a small little purple thing produce 25-50 seeds :P

    The same way a D.capensis can produce a few hundred seeds. The stigma appears to be rather strong IME. I have bent it many ways (by accident) and it didn't snap or break.

    How do I know when to snip off the flower stalk, so I can collect the seeds? The petals fall off about a few days ago and the seed pod/fruit is swelling more and more each day. I don't want to wake up one day and look at the flower stalk and see a bunch of seeds all over the windowsill [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    When the seed pod turns brown and begins to split down the middle, you can cut it off and harvest the seeds. Also, you can just wait for it to split open by itself, revealing the seeds.
