I have a single Ping caerulea in flower with one flower that's been open for a little while & another still forming (almost there). Since I only have one & I wanted to try and get it to seed, I was thinking I could just collect the pestles with the pollen on them & save them until the other flower opens & is ready for pollination. I doubt the one that's open now will last until the other flower is ready, I can see it starting to lean its head back which is why I need to act quick.
My question is how do I store the pollen for a few days until the other flower opens?
And secondly, what are the possible repercussions of self pollinating this plant?
Don't mind the flowering Dendrobium along side it
