As myself and indjo stated, you should not attempt this without much to fall back on. There is much more ro breeding bettas than it seems. Please dont take this as a discouragement. I would love to see another breeder on the forum and it would be quite interesting to find out how you go about breeding.
In the time that you have to watch them grow into adults I would suggest going to various websites that are posted at the top of the betta breeding section in one of the stikies. Also there is one that actually tells you the basics of betta breeding.
Also just to say in response to your reply, it doesnt matter for bettas to make bubblenests when breeding because some will and some will not. Many males wont even blow a single bubble until the eggs are released. So the nest isnt a huge issue. When you said you introduced the female to the male, did you mean without any kind of barrier? Or with a divider or something to keep the male from getting her? Does he flare at her?
