can you collect and save sarr pollen for any length of time to use on another flower that is about to open in a week or 2 or maybee a few days...
if so how long is it viable for?

I use a plastic specimen container one they use at the Dr. for taking your fluid specimens , very easy screw lid or just some thing similar and not to big , small easy to store , , have the pollen in some paper wrap , works for short time , for longer use the silica gel packs to put in the containers , ones they use in shoes boxes or packages to keep out moisture

Most pollen can be stored and kept with care taken , collecting VFT pollen my prove very difficult , it may take you quite some time to perfect this extraction process, , I have never tried VFT pollen collection as yet , looks like a big task for you , good luck with that

if the VFT flower has been rained on , in my experience the seed production will be extremely low or none at all , if I want VFT seed , I have to cove the plants in flower I want seed from if pollinating them .
Sarra are not over affected by rain with pollination as the have the protective bell , but pollination should be done dry .as the pollen when wet is useless and fruitless as well , and pollination should be done as soon as the pollen drop's into the bell chamber ,sooner the better, but must to dry , some covering the flower if rain coming is a practical thing to do for both ,if you intend to pollinate just a simple cove clear plastic or put inside for the pollination time or under a covered porch as pollination only takes a few days or less to perform ,and will not affect the growth of the plant in sheltered in this short time
