Just a small tip, collect the pollen of male plants in a small cup like the
little containers of a photographic film and add some water. Mix the pollen
and the water well and then simply pour the mixture in the tube of a female
plant!. It works like a charm and I always have very good pollination rates,
the water runs out but the pollen sticks to the stigma's!.

Jim was right, the green candidissimum has pollen sacs and stigmas and if
the timing and my aim was right, the brush successfully transfered pollen.
This spurred a flurry of activity and investigation at other flowering
Arisaema and pollen from one male fargesii was transferred to three female
fargesii (using a new brush, of course.) I'm afraid I had to be
ruff(sic)with the fargesii flower; it was not pretty.
