I polinate the plants myself . It is easy , wait until you have a male and female flower (at first you tend to get an abundance of male flowers but dont worry , femals will come) . The females have a lump behind the petals
Take a male flower , peal the petals down and insert it into the female . If you have a number of plants it shouldnt be a problem amongst them there are sure to have quite a selection to mix and match ! hope this helps.
I have 3 plants, and about 3 flowers have formed into acorn type shape. I currently have 3 in flower, but I am not quite sure where to look, with regards to the lump. There is no sign of any lump on the petal itself, only tentacles. The base of the petals all look the same. I have lost another 2 today, although there still appears to be plenty of buds.
