    not that difficult...like pollinating any other flower. but i think there is a waiting period for one of the "bits" to mature...

    I don't think mixing genetically identical plants to pollenate each other would divert genes.

    Make seeds. We need more genetically unique VFTs in this world...

    Ant, you beat me to it.

    Genetic diversity within Typicals in circulation has decreased due to the decreased practice of field collection and the increased practice of tissue culture in general, but in this case, the plants are exact clones. For this reason, any seed set may be weak. Many plants don't like to self pollinate, and "crossing" two clones is, in practice, self-pollination.
