    Jimscott, I just use a toothpick to whisk the anthers a few times. There was once when a flower closed before I pollinated it. What I did was to roll the flower gently between my thumb and index fingers.

    To date:
    Self-pollination: 12 seeds
    Toothpick pollination: 42 seeds!
    Roll-a-roll pollination: 49 seeds!!!

    Btw, I noticed that fresh seeds don't work very well. For me at least.

    Jim,

    I sow mine right away when I get seeds (twice) and then nothing happens!

    Apparently not the correct approach.

    I hear Christmas is right around the corner. (Sorry for taking so long)

    Pyro, Cindy, and Glenn: Thank you... on a variety of levels!

    Travis, the U warburgii is flowering nicely. So far there are 11 stalks!

    Guess what? One of my B.liniflora seeds appears to have finally germinated. I scraped 7 of the B.liniflora seeds off of the peat moss (the ones that haven't germinated after 5 months) and put them in distilled water as an experiment. Lo and behold, 5 days later one of the seeds is sending out a root while another one appears to be doing the same.BTW, the seeds that I sowed in this pot, five months ago, were fresh off of my plant.

    From what I have gleened, people have had success AND failure both from sowing freshly and putting them in cold storage. What seems to be reality is that successful germination is mostly pollination skills and THEN sowing skills. If it aint been pollinated, all the sowing skills in the world won't achieve germination.

    I find that germination can be erratic. A few from each batch usually germinate within a few weeks for me, but some seem to take up to 1 year.

    Cheers,

    Greg

    If it ain't been pollinated, you won't even get any seeds.
