A small paint brush or a piece of tissue or toilet paper rolled up to form a
small quill can be used to transfer pollen.
I always have used multiple clones but I do think S. vanderietiae will self.
Some of the other Sarcos have not selfed for me.

The seeds will change color and quickly spiral off into neighboring pots. I
find that a bit of white glue put on the top of the awl allows the seeds to
mature but keeps them together for easy harvest.
