Haworthia pollination

Post by Arash37 »

My Haworthia limifolia has just blossomed. Can i pollinate it if i have just one specimen or i need at least 2 planst? If it is selffertile what tool is best to pollinate? Because it's flowers are really narrow and tiny.

You will need a hair from a horse (or a donkey, like I use), maybe whiskers from a cat to poke into the flowers.
I am pretty sure you will need another Haworthia. Of course it is prefered to have another H. limifolia if you don't want a hybrid.
