    Nepenthes pollen is good for cold storage above freezing temps for only a few months. For anything longer than 3 or 4 months, it needs to be dry, and below freezing. You know that, right?

    I've had success with crosses done 8 or 9 months after collecting the pollen, sometimes nearly a year afterward, and it is kept dry, even if not in freezing temperatures.

    I have currently a male N. Miranda in bloom and producing pollen, and will soon have a N. x mixta with flowers, in probably 2 weeks or so. I also still have the N. ventricosa "red" pollen, though I think that's on its last legs. Pm me if this interests you at all.

    The only pollen I have already is the miranda.The vent.red sounds like it could be a waste of time.But I do appreciate the help from you.To me the miranda and mixta look too much the same.At least the one I have.
