How to Pollinate Geo Plant:
Increase Your Yield

Updated: June 10, 2022

Geo Plants are a unique type of plant that require manual pollination in order to increase their yield. These plants have both male and female parts, but they do not fertilize themselves naturally. As a result, pollination must be done manually to ensure that the plant produces the maximum amount of fruit possible. In this article, we will discuss the steps necessary to properly pollinate your Geo Plant and increase your yield.

Step 1: Identify Male and Female Flowers

Geo Plants have two types of flowers: male and female. The male flowers are usually smaller and grow on long stems, while the female flowers are larger and grow closer to the main stem of the plant. In order to properly pollinate your Geo Plant, it is important to be able to identify these two types of flowers.

Step 2: Collect Pollen from Male Flowers

Once you have identified the male flowers on your Geo Plant, it is time to collect the pollen. To do this, gently remove a male flower from the stem and locate the stamen inside. The stamen is the long thin part of the flower that contains the pollen. Gently rub the stamen between your fingers, collecting as much pollen as possible.

Step 3: Transfer Pollen to Female Flowers

Now that you have collected pollen from a male flower, it is time to transfer it to a female flower. Locate a female flower on your Geo Plant and use a small paintbrush or cotton swab to transfer the pollen onto the stigma inside the flower. The stigma is the sticky part at the center of the flower that will receive the pollen.

Step 4: Repeat Process

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for all of the male and female flowers on your Geo Plant. It is important to pollinate every flower on the plant in order to maximize your yield.

Tips for Successful Pollination

  • Pollinate your Geo Plant during the morning hours when the flowers are fully open.
  • Use a clean and dry paintbrush or cotton swab to transfer pollen.
  • Be gentle when handling the flowers to avoid damaging them.
  • If you have multiple Geo Plants, cross-pollinate them to increase fertility.

By following these simple steps and tips, you can greatly increase the yield of your Geo Plant and enjoy a bountiful harvest.


How often should I pollinate my Geo Plant?

You should pollinate your Geo Plant every other day during the blooming season to ensure that all of the flowers are properly fertilized.

Can I use a different method to pollinate my Geo Plant?

Yes, you can also use a small handheld electric toothbrush to vibrate the flowers and release the pollen. However, this method may not be as effective as manual pollination.

What happens if I don’t pollinate my Geo Plant?

If you do not manually pollinate your Geo Plant, it will not produce fruit. The plant’s male and female parts cannot fertilize themselves naturally, so pollination is necessary for reproduction.

How can I tell if my Geo Plant has been properly pollinated?

After successful pollination, the female flowers will begin to grow into fruit. If you notice small fruit growing on your plant, it has been properly pollinated.
