Pollination by Hand
March 1, 2019
No bees in your indoor grow tents? I doubt it! Then you’ll need to give certain plants, such as this cucumber, a hand with pollination if you want it to develop any fruit for harvest.
One very important thing to remember about growing fruits indoors: the ﬂowers require pollination to develop fruit. Wind and pollinating insects would accomplish that work outdoors, but indoor gardeners must play the role of honeybee. You can use paintbrushes to move pollen from male flowers to females flowers.
