Plant Propagation – How to pollinate Heliamphora

November 2, 2021

Fun fact! Heliamphora only release pollen from their anthers when they sense vibrations from distinct insect wings. In our greenhouse, we use a tuning fork to mimic this behavior.

During Summer Rayne Oakes’ visit to our greenhouse, Ryan demonstrated how to properly collect Heliamphora pollen using a tuning fork. Thanks to Ryan’s symphonic skills, they were able to successfully pollinate another flower!
