Did you know that your fruiting plants need your help to pollinate you so the fruits can form?
When growing these plants indoors, we have to be the bee or the wind that pollinates them. When you see flowers, you can either:
- Tap or shake the whole plant
- Swirl the inside of the flower with your finger
- Use a small brush to "paint" (swirl) the inside of the flower
Be thorough, ensuring you touch the flower's entire surface. Repeat daily until fruit begins to appear from the flower. If you're pollinating different varieties of fruiting plants at the same time, it's best to swap fingers or brushes between varieties to avoid cross-pollination, which can result in some pretty funky fruits!
