    Fantastic pic B. Wow. How did you dry the pollen? Did u bake it or leave it out in the sun in a bag? or did u just leave it out in the open at RT?

    Congrats on the successful storage Butch. No surprise here though. You are the heli master.

    LOL, I think Jen (pokie) would say she wonders how I manage to turn on a light bulb....

    (she has been showing me how to do the 1% MTT stain test for pollen viability)
    Trying to do a good "killed pollen" test for a negative control.

    But if it works like hoped, those that are pink are viable and maybe those with no tint but black lines.

    Thinking any with yellow tint (black lines or not) are bad... but that is what the killed test should confirm.

    Just took a peek at a killed and not killed sample

    Same pollen sample, same stain solution, and both incubated together.
    First image is killed pollen, second one is non killed pollen
    woot woot!!




    Don't think you could ask for much better
    That is just so cool...
