    2 VFT about to flower...

    Can I mix or try to get these to seed...

    Any advise on the Pollination process would be great.

    If so whats the process please, as I think that it would be rather interesting to do...

    Thanks Wayne

    Wayne,

    Pollination is pretty simple. When the stigma becomes receptive, it appears fuzzy on the end. At this point, you just need to touch pollen to it. You do this in a variety of ways either with a paint brush, tooth pick or by just rubbing the flowers together. If your plant is outside, most likely nature will take care of the pollination for you.

    I wrote up more about it on my website here:
