    Unknown. Tuning forks are the most common device but I've heard of people using electric toothbrushes to "buzz" the pollen loose.

    I am back! LOL

    The B. guehoi needs cross-pollination. I did it manually with just the tweezer. Flicked the anthers and got the pollen to fall onto a piece of white plastic. Then I transferred it onto a flower of another plant. The reward was loads of seeds and pollen allergy which I never suffered from before!

    So please, use the electric toothbrush. And a mask!

    LOL! I don't have an electric toothbrush... but I do have hay fever, especially in the spring. Looks like this flower is just going to have to be for pretty. Maybe down the road the other plant will flower simultaneously to a new flower from this plant.

    I might have a hard time of having two plants of either A or B flowering much less at the same. I might get one of A and one of B flowering at the same time. I wonder if the pollen can be stored for a few weeks?
