Chilli flowers with no pollen

Hi all!

My chilli plant has finally flowered but there are no visible pollen around the pollen sac for pollination. Usually I believe the pollen sac looks dusted with yellow powder (which I think is the pollen), but my flowers only have purple looking pollen sacs with no pollen.

Wondering what has gone wrong? Should I wait longer?



Hi @peppz1604,

The flower has opened but it is not fully mature. Everything is ok, just give it a few days and there will be a lot of pollen soon.
