    I am no expert, heck, I haven't even managed to aquire a Utric yet, but I do have an idea for Tamlin when it comes to pollination. If it were me, I would get a hackle feather from a rooster and stick the tip in each little flower and tickle it a bit, moveing from flower to flower. Feathers hold pollen fairly good and are flexable and delicate enough to probubly get some pollen in and out of very small flowers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] If anyone wants to try and is in need of feathers to try this with, just pm me you address and I'll mail you a sampleing of different textures so you can see which works best and give it a shot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]... or you can send me a plant that may flower soon so I can have one and test it at PO Box..., LOL J/K

    Hackle feathers? I raise chickens\roosters and hackle feathers are 4+ in long! How one of those would fit in a tiny utric flower I have no clue I used a pine needle to polinate mine inserting it as far as I could down the throat swipeing upward then reinserting and the seed pod is swelling so hopefully I will get some seed....

    Nice work Pondboy! I'll have to get a pine needle and test your tool, maybe it will work for me too if I can manage to see the opening that is! Which species did you try this on?

    Darcie, the feather thing might work too, and I'll give that a try as well. Where's my pillow?

    The tip of the feather, no the whole thing. What breed of chicken? The texture varries a bit by breed.
