    Hi ChickenGuy,
    I use a horse tail hair to cross polinate with. These would reach down the throat of the MG for sure.
    Just take your time and go slowly. I cross pollinate plumeria flowers this way. I know there is a cross pollination kit on eBay but I've never used it.

    Maybe candles and romantic music might help? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Just kidding!!!! What colors are the two you are trying to cross?

    hahaha that's actually pretty funny!! [​IMG][​IMG] I like to cross the oranges with pinks or reds. I've had a few gorgeous crosses and a bunch of whites! bummer for the whites. It does take 3 to 5 years from germination to flowering though. By that time I'm so attached to them they're like pets.
