    I use a bamboo skewer, now that I've started pollinating. I pop the pollen mass out, it sticks to the skewer, then I give the other end of the stick a flick with my finger to knock off any shield or excess parts that would normally be knocked off, and then its easy to pollinate the flower. I have one Phal that is dying right now because I removed the pollen mass, but the other plant I removed pollen from is showing no ill effects.
