Aphrodite buds

Aphrodite has most of the anthers changed to petals Flowers that 
dont have any or very bad anthers are inclined to stay closed( 
Any growing conditions that induce them to make at least some 
pollen will lead to opening of the flowers. My suggestion ( not 
based on any experience) : lots of water as said before and lots of 
low nitrogen fertilizer during spring and summer.
Thinking again : maybe keeping the soil very poor will give better 
anthers and consequently opening of the flowers? ( lots of water 
might wash away all fertilizer from the soil!)
Why not try both ?
