Pollen

Hi Gregg, Nhu,

I read it in an old Dutch book about sowing and growing plants.
More antique than up-to-date. But when I read about this it intrigued me.
I would not believe it myself in the beginning.
But I like to try and and experiment.

I add pollen of the same plant, and add some cement powder.

And I was quite astonished about the results.
I had one Cyrtanthus contractus flowering in December 2013.
And I did this trick and now I have some seed pods on it........


 From a spring like Holland,

> Quite fascinating, Hans.  But I wonder most as to how you came to choose using cement powder to induce fertilization??  It would likely not have been my first choice... or second or third!  That it works is remarkable.  Do you use this technique widely with different plants?
