its very easy, just get some pollen on a tooth pick or i use a fine art brush , get some pollen on it, and brush over the the stigma witch are located at the inside the lower bell at the top tips of the lower bells, thees are the receptors there ,they need to be done as soon as the pollen drops into the lower bell as that tells you that this ready for pollination ,usually before the petals have fallen off ,it may be to late for this one , but try as see

this will help
