    16m old heli pollen

    February of 2012, froze samples from 3 different species.
    Tested today via pollen tube growth, all still viable after being frozen for 16m in a home refrigerator/freezer

    Sample #1

    Yes... but I don't know for sure it's required, I've not tried "from flower to freezer"

    In addition to pollen tube growth checks, Luca has successfully pollinated a flower using pollen I had frozen for one year.
