I've had 2 D. paradoxa plants flowering for the past 2 weeks or so. Rather than flower every day, they seem to almost alternate with maybe both flowering together every 2 or 3 out of 5 days.
My question: is there any harm (or benefit) to removing the flowers that do not get fertilized? Since they are not self-fertile, removing the unfertilized blooms will make it easier to keep track of the flowers that I actually attempted to pollinate. (While I did create a tracking list - I know I won't trust it 100% and will end up scouring all of the spent blooms for seeds anyway).
I'm thinking that the harm to removing the unfertilized blossoms would be minimal but wanted to check to see if anyone has any thoughts or experience in this area.
While these stalks are close to finished - there are more stalks coming...
