I was going to self my G. histrionica (powellii) this morning. I sacrificed one of the flowers by picking it to inspect before trying to pollinate some of the others. Hmmm ... I couldn't find the stigmatic surface. After going on the internet and reading I found that they are difficult to pollinate because there is a tiny slit for the pollinia to fit through. Well, I couldn't find that either. After reading further it turns out that some smaller plants may be male only. Have any of you had experience or success with Gongora and wish to share your ideas on the subject?
