     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.
