Make an origami envelope out of waxed paper for the pollen and store it in the fridge. The conditioned air will help keep the pollen dry and safe.
However, from everything I've read, Nep pollen only has a short, reliable shelf life. Most reports say the you should use it within three months for best results. Beyond that, its efficacy goes down hill pretty quick to being practically dead in as little as six months. Some people have had flowering females, needed pollen within the next couple of days, and turned down pollen over a couple of months old.
I have seen requests for pollen on other forums, maybe go there and offer it up. Most negotiate a 50/50 deal for any seeds that get produced. But then, those only have about a three month reliable viability too.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
