You did? I find this hard to beleive. When pollen is showing on the spadix
of the inflorescence, that inflorescence is past its time to receive pollen.
This is Anhurium's way of preventing self-pollination. So these seeds you
got, are they viable? Selby did not use the technique you discribe but had 4
clones on hand thus increasing the liklyhood that an inflorescence would be
secreting stigmatic fluid at the same time ANOTHER inflorescence was
shedding pollen. These two events (stigmatic fluid and pollen) DO NOT occur
on the same inflorescence at the same time.
