    Harvested Heliamphora pollen

    Harvested some pollen a few moments ago from a ripe H. folliculata flower.
    (tuning fork method)

    Flower harvested:
    (Image post harvest)

    Notice the anthers have dropped down and become parallel with the pistil.
    They have also turned from green to a nice bright yellow.
    Tuning fork frequency = 512 Hz.

    Pollen collected on a cdrom case:
    (anything black plastic, easier to see the pollen IMHO)


    Please excuse pic quality, quickie images with point and click camera
    Thanks for looking,
    Av

    Nice...wish I had some of that pollen for my near future hetero x minor flowers...but I bet you have serious plans for it.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
