Dear Zach,

Aroids is a big family with great variability.
Due to the protogyny, self-pollination is not supposed to be common (but
several taxa have overlapping stigma receptivity and pollen release).
Arisarum vulgare can be self-pollinated, if you brush the stigma with a
paintbrush.

For example in Arum, you can not self-pollinated within a same
inflorescence but in many cases  you can "self"-pollinated between
inflorescences of a same individuals (that is called geitonogamy).

Do you have some genera in mind?

All the best,

Marc
