    Since the one plant is a creeping vine, I am attempting to encourage it to take root on the soil surface of a pot in its path:







    In case I can actually do anything with 2 flowers that are open at the same time...

    Brian Barnes suggests removing a few anthers and splitting them in half with a razor blade. Dry for 15 minutes and rub the split side on the stigma of another plant.

    I can live with that approach, since I don't own an electric toothbrush!

    Cutting the anthers open works, I could see pollen grains. I do need to get some micro surgery tweezers/forceps though. The dental tweezers I have are just not designed for working with such small soft tissue.

    hmmm, looks like the other flowers aborted on one of the plants.

    The branching hybrid has yet to show flowers.

    Still no pulvinus observed on any of the plants.

    I've gotta wait a day or two before the other plant opens up a flower before I perform micro-surgery.
