It must be that time of year because my Brocchinia hechtioide is sending up a flower stalk. I would like some advice on polinating the flower and getting it to set seed, if this is possible. Is it possible to to self polinate the flowers ? and how do I go about it ?
The flowers aren't as advanced as Brian's but looking at Brian's photos, they look like a fairly conventional flower. I should imagine that my flowers will look similar to Brian's reducta.
Does anyone know if the seed is viable for any length of time ? I have an Aechmia fasciata (urn plant) but I wasn't sucessful at polinating the flowers when I tried a while back. I take it that Bromeliad flowers are not all the same in structure.
