I have heard about a technique in which water was poured through the
male plant and caught and then poured through the female. I have tried
this with A. sikokianum, but still only got about five nice plump seeds.
Has anyone else had success with this or have any other pollination
tricks to offer now that the season is upon us.

iyoanum is over, erubescens just popping up, etc.
