    I fully remove the anthers from both flowers and place the pollen packs onto the opposing flower. That way, little chance of contamination and a high chance of pollination since the pollen packs will break down somewhat and release all stored pollen even after the flowers close up.

    Definitely want to see this cross when it matures, keep it alive
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    +1! This could be very interesting when mature.

    K that's what I do but sometimes I feel like I'm doing something wrong. I've done it before and gotten incredible yield out of the pods but just recently I tried it with this cross and also did it on a couple of capensis broad leaf to get more seed and ended up with minimal seed count

    Sometimes it just doesn't take, or the species aren't compatible.
