My understanding is that you need two A crispus to pollinate. Other
Aponogetons (like the lace plant) can be self-fertilized. Some can be
successfully fooled by mixing pollen from another Aponogeton species
with their own pollen.
I've successfully self-pollinated A. crispus. I have a few sprouting seeds
growing in my tank right now from a single A. crispus flower.
