Ae mexicana selfs?

Does anyone know if Ae mexicana selfs? I have one with flowers but the pollen doesn't look collectible so I'd like to use it as a seed parent if possible.

Hi Guys

I can only say my plants always get seed, however I have always grown them in the open garden so who knows if a pollinator has visited them or if they selfed.

I think it does. I'm pretty sure the ones I have were grown from seed, but it's been so long I don't remember doing it.

Thanks, I extracted a few anthers and put them in the freezer but I can't imagine having much luck with them but I'll give it a try.
