Thimble Cactus flowering accident how to pollinate?

mcgyvr2009i(Schenectady, NY 5b)December 7, 2012

Hi. I brought my thimble cactus inside just before temperatures fell below freezing, now it thinks it's late winter because of the temperature increase. Can I pollinate the flowers and get seeds? If yes, how do I do it? The flowers kind of look like this:

It was a complete accident that this happened, but sweet! lol Totally unexpected. What a wake up call.
So, help is appreciated.
Thanks in advanced.

Okay, well, I'm going to assume that it's impossible. Thanks.

Well, your picture isn't coming through, so that's probably why you didn't get an answer.

With a name like McGyver, I'd think you'd be able to figure out how to post a pic. LOL :)

Oh, I just found the problem. I thought that it was impossible, because that's usually what lack of responses means. But now that I'm on my school laptop, I totally see the problem. Sorry guys. lol Apparently this image isn't sharable. Oh well. I'll post the link so that it can be clicked on:

Again, sorry about that.
