Saving Pollen?

by TheTrapper » Tue Apr 16, 2019 3:26 am

Does anyone know any good techniques on how to save pollen and maintain its viability. I have seen many article that talk about transferring the pollen to a white sheet of paper and putting in a ziplock bag in a warm dry environment. Just would like to see everyones 2¢. I am trying to cross some spring-summer flowering drosera with some winter flowering ones. Thanks! :D

I heard putting it in the fridge works. I'm waiting to hear as well, but I want to add, how long can it be stored?

Can be stored several months in the fridge. If you want to risk it you can make it last a year in a freezer. At least this is what is true of sarracenia
