Tecophilaea pollination

The presence of a Tecophilaea flower in full bloom and a second on the way -
and the potential to cross pollinate them and get seed - has me daydreaming
about starting a Tecophilaea farm. 

But I don't see obvious anthers or stigmas. Are they buried down in the
flower? Will I have to tear apart the bloom to get to them?

Any advice from more practiced hands will be appreciated.
