    Hi Seet it's quite easy to make self pollination or cross pollination what I need to to I will choose the most interesting / beautiful flower I will take as a parent and the other one as a mother that is genetically compatible regardless hybrid or species. Here we go, here I'm using Phal aphrodite I will do self polination.

    Step 1
    Using a toothpick/whatever you have make sure is cleaned, remove anther from the flower selected as the parent. you can remove the labellum (lip) for easy to insert polinium later.

    Step 4
    Pick up a pollinium than put into the sticky fluid of the stigma until half buried. Now the pollination is complete. You need to wait if the pollination successful the ovary will turn green and swollen in Malaysia maturity of Phal about 4 to 7 months if you want to do green seed pod culture 4 months is more than enough (to save time). Each mother flask can produce more than thousand of tiny young seedling.I hope this may help you to do crossing. Good luck seet

    Congrats to a very nice cross with awesome results so far. I think your green pod parent could be Phal Ho's Kuang Feng Glory.
