Is the pollination successful?

hello all!

since last Wed, it's been 6 days since i tried self-pollination.
and those 2 i used with dried pollens didn't seem to be successful.
but the other 2 i tried with fresh pollens, the stalk seems to be swelling up.
i'm not too sure.
so here are some photos, appreciate any comments!

Did you pollinate each flower with its own pollen?

Even successfully pollinated , it is still not out of the woods yet . Some time the plant can auto abort for no reason . So you still have a long wait. But I would see if the stagma is closed . If it is still open , then sadly it is unsuccessful one .

No, for this, I pollinated it with Dendrobium young beauty and Dendrobium airy peach.

Erm, which part is the stagma? Lol. Is it the part where we put the pollen into Another orchid for pollination?

I read up and found out where the stagma is and it's closed(hopefully I'm not worng) does this mean it worked?

The stalk is still green despite the flower withering and it's getting bigger. Ill try to update the photos after some time


Thanks!

So far so good, it seems. The first signs I saw after successful pollination of my phals were wilting blossoms, swelling of the stigma, and thickening of the stem behind the blossom as it starts to become a seedpod. On my phals, only the pollinated blooms wilted and the rest continued blooming for months. Now you just have to wait for a few months until they are ready to be harvested.
