Dischidia pectinoides is Pollinated Very Easily

Like other Dischidia, Dischidia pectinoides is pollinated extremely easily.  My plant came to me covered with seed pods, and I have had many new flowers produce seedpods with no discernible  pollinator.  The pods burst continually making the plant rather unsightly.  The seeds are very easy to germinate and grow out in sphagnum moss.  Below see the newly germinated seedlings at three weeks of age.  The second photo show the same seedlings at six months of age – note that some are already sporting ‘Ant Leaves’.
