Dubstep13 wrote:Thanks can you also do this with VFT pollen?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

Ill certainly check back next time I need to do some pollinating!all complete/"perfect" flowers have pollen, in the case of "perfect" flowers, they have both female parts () and male parts (pollen). while in the case of "imperfect" flowers, like nepenthes, flowers are either male, or female, but not both. male flowers have only pollen (and flowery things like stems) and female flowers only have the female parts, and do not contain pollen. as seen here : http://programs.clarendoncollege.edu/pr ... age018.jpg
