too bad they are in the wrong order. I want the shattered glass to be
female since the chance of inheritance being maternal is great. I put it
in a cold greenhouse and the proposed dad (Leo Song) which is maybe two
days behind is now in our orchid house at 90F. So with the variegated at
55F I hope I can do it?

Extremely unlikely

Yes.  Just brush the pollen into a small container and store in
the Fridge

Use to pollinate the next flowering of an Am. konjac just as the
spathe is opening up.

Good luck,
