I carefully removed petals of nearly opened flower and removed anthers with tweezer. I save anthers in cup and next day they have tiny amount of dry white pollen, I gently rub this on the style. After a day or two the style or flower falls off, what am I doing wrong? The flowers are so tiny and delicate.
