I have a impateins plant and would like to propagagte the plant by seed. i have read that the pistils appear after a few days the pollen has shed. Thus preventing self pollination. Is it possible to save pollen and use it to pollante a flower so seeds can from. I will then use the seeds ti cross pollinate agin. Has anyone ever done this?

please help

You don't really need to save pollen. Just take some off one flower that has pollen and then dab it on a flower that dropped the cap. That is the easiest way to pollinate and you are sure to get seed.
