Choke flowers on my lemon plant have bloomed! So to refresh our memories, I want to try and pollinate my flowers, and here is what I need to do according to Grow What You Love website:
It’s simple enough to move the pollen from the anthers of the stamen (male part) to the stigma of the pistil (female part) with a Q-tip.
So I go outside to my lemon plant, all ready to do my thing, and ummm . . . .
Where's the female stick bulb thing that's supposed to be in the middle of the flowers? How am I supposed to dust pollen onto something if it's not there?
Not a single one of the flowers has it . . . not one. I found some info here and here, but I'm still not sure what exactly is going on. I know one thing for sure though . . . lacking female parts suck.
