When I got home from work today I walked to the back porch where I have my plants and picked up the Neo I just got to smell it (I have to take advantage while it is still in bloom, I LOVE the fragrance) and I noticed that the little yellow dots (yeah, I know they're pollinia) on the front weren't there any more which made me look closer and guess what I found....It looks like some bug came by trying to get nectar and actually took off the pollinia and pollinated 2 of the flowers...look!

If you look you can see the pollinia in the stigma


In this one you can see the pollinia missing from the anther

So what do you think I should do, leave it and send the seed to someone to flask it or just cut it off?
