Self-pollination Comments
SELF-POLLINATION: In Some Orchids Autogamy is one type of self-pollination and occurs in an open flower where pollen is transferred to the stigma without an intermediary or pollinator; cleistogamy is the other type and occurs in an unopened flower; Encyclia cochleata var. triandrum and Epidendrum rigidum are examples of autogamy. A75-700 0
SELF-POLLINATION: Undesirable It is a characteristic of Epidendrum belvederense, Dendrobium brymerianum, Cattleya aurantiaca as species or clones; they do not open their flowers well, since the self-fertilization takes place in the unopened bud; discard such plants. ODA69-112; cleistogamous epidendrums commented on; refer to ODA70-38+ 0
SELF-POLLINATION: Undesirable Habit It is notable in Cattleya aurantiaca and others; the stigmatic fluid spills into the anther cap and the pollen tubes penetrate the stigma. A72-198; in some paphiopedilum species, also. A72-592 0
