I have this brinjal plant which gives beautiful white flowers almost every day. They all look the same to me. Can't tell if thety are male/female. Out of these one has turned into a fruit, while all the others have been falling off after a few days. 

How do I help the flowers to pollinate ?

Hi,

 

If you are plant is outside, you need not worry about pollination. Wind or bee will take care of the pollination. However you can gently shake or vibrate the brach, Preferably morning.

Even difficiency of potassium can be the reason. You can try NPK which is high in potassium like 5:15:30 or 6:12:36 2/3 gm per liter once in a week.

 

All the best.

Hello SowerGrower,

I second FG here. Also, in brinjal all the flowers have male and female parts.
