So, we have a couple in different tanks but this is the only one that’s really taken off and the first we’ve ever seen flower. Now we would really like to pollenate it but have some questions.
…do we need another plant? The only video I’ve found is of a guy who wet brushes the flowers of 2/3 different plants. Obviously that’s not an option for us but not knowing the process we thought we would ask. Is it at all possible to pollenate just just the one plant? If it is, we would really appreciate a link, video or write up on how we would go about that. Thanks again guys.

There are a few different forms of laceplant, at least some of them are self-fertile, - ie can produce viable seed when pollinated by the same plant. There may be some others that are not. The individual flowers on the spike produce pollen, and are receptive to pollen, at different times, so stroke a soft brush up and down the spike every day that the flowers (or some of them) are open and hope for the best. :)
