when its flowers open.. and the female parts [i am blanking and laughing] .. are receptive ... time of day is very important ....

and the flower is not the big show-offy part ... those are the bracts [well at least i think i got that part.. lol] .. the flower is actually the little yellow thing in teh middle ...

You will see yellow pollen on the small green flowers in the centre of the red bracts.

and so many hours after the pollen dries [sometimes at teh same time] .. that being the male part ... the female part will get sticky and that is when you will add the male to the female ...
