I can see all of the ovaries now from the 3 flowers.
The one with 10 corolla teeth, and double everything, had 2 ovaries.
Now the 8 corolla teeth has 2 ovaries too.
The 10 teeth and the fused style but 2 stigma has a fused can clearly see more than one.
That fused style looks like a strip of pasta now.
I don't think that there is any hope of the 8 toothed ones having accepted the pollen..they look an odd colour.
But the original 10 tooth flower is holding it's's probably too much to hope, but fingers crossed.
The last picture shows the 3 of them with their styles hanging out , 2 with 2, and the fused one.
Just have to wait to see if #1 twins and #3 fused have been pollinated.
