    Flower opened!

    Finally, my VFT's flower has opened! I thought it would be tiny, but it's pretty big, compared to my capensis flowers. Is there any special way to pollinate it? Like waiting a while then doing it or something? I just tried to pollinate it now, there's a bunch of pollen parts and one thing in the middle that looked different so I put the pollen on that thing.
    Pics!

    I hvae to agree, that second photo is very nice . Try using two different flowers (two separate stalks) and gently rubbing them together.

    Well I had two stalks, but one got all weird. It had short little thorny things on it, and the buds got some holes in them so I cut it off and used it as cutting material.

    I have 15 flowers on one stalk.. I thought that was a high number. What's usual? How many seeds should I expect out of the 15 flowers?

    I also have a question. If I pollinate them right, about how long will the flowers take to make ready seeds?
