Tricks to make a betta blow a bubblenest

I currently have my pair in the spawning tank. She is floating in a plastic cup. He is outside etc. She is looking quite ready to spawn, very eggy, swimming submissively with head down to the male, and swimming with him when he swims around her cup. My only problem is the male. He isn't blowing a bubblenest. Other than IAL or betta spa like products, does anybody have any little tricks to induce him to blow a bubblenest?

I have also heard of people making tea, minus the sugar and milk of course, or just a teabag and putting it in the tank with the bettas. Does this have the same affect as IAL?

just let Pog see other bettas, lmao. Try turning off the filter, if you have one. Cut a styrafoam cup in half and float it in there, too.

I had the filter on weakly, but I'll turn it off. I already did the styrofoam cup thing.

Yeah, but I didn't really want to let them together and have her get the crud beaten out of her, because of the lack of a nest.

Some males never make a nest. Don't rely on them. As long as they are flirt swimming, they will spawn - with or without a nest.

Use bubble wrap as a nest anchor. They will assume its a nest and will add to it.
