I would like to get more information about pollination of warm temperate pings and not finding much.

I'm talking about primuliflora, planifolia, lutea, ionantha, pumili, etc. I know that lusitanica is self fertile and needs no intervention to set seed, but do not know about the others. Are they self fertile and self seed setting like lusitanica, do they need manual pollination to self, do they need a second non-clone plant to set seed? Primuliflora doesn't matter that much, since it sets plants on leaf tips, but the others may need to be propageted from seed and I would like to be able to do that.

Thanks, Jeff. In some of these, I only have 1 plant. Also, I can pollinate the Mexicans, but have not tried any warm temperates yet. Any changes to technique needed or helpful?

I was wondering if pollen exchange is a viable option to get some of these successfully pollinated. Do anthers hold up well enough to exchange through post or just pollen?
