    Wow what a wedding night! Thanks for the tutorial. No matter how much I read about it, pics are still better. Good luck with the happy couple and lets see pics as the pod develops etc. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks all for showing interest and wishing me success. The pollination was indeed successful. Over the weekend the petals of both the flowers started shrinking. Today I cut back the drying petals, I can already notice the swelling of the carpel. Will take pictures tomorrow.
