As forced pollination use the method of shaking. Every lash a little shake every day. It should be done very carefully and preferably carried out such pollination every day from the morning. After shaking, turn on a small drip spray. The pollen will dry up. Excessive moisture is also undesirable. The humidity level in the greenhouse to maintain approximately 75%.
