AJ Hicks at the OSP has a great short book on the subject for hobbyists. I think he also has a more scientific one that is much more detailed (and expensive.)

You really need a good seal in order to keep contamination out of the prepared flasks. Venting the lids is definitely the way to go. I hope the band aids work for you. I use the "sterile spots"...

The stigmatic surface only becomes receptive in response to the pollinia being removed. It's to prevent self pollination. You can force the pollen into the unopened slit or just wait 12 hours or...

In my experience, germinating seed ex vitro is not the challenge. It's the growing on to a self-sustaining size plant that is the hard part. Keep us updated on your progress.

I would think that officers in Texas should be used to dealing with sun shades and very familiar with the procedures for them, especially parking/traffic officers.
