    n(veitchii x tiveyi) x maxima, pollen available

    the flowers are now producing lots of pollen , if anyone is interested , ill collect and keep it in the fridge for a while.
    others here have identified the plant as male.
    Any advise on the process would appreciated ,
    Is it best in the fridge or the freezer?, ive seen both ways here.
    I've tapped a couple of the blooms and the pollen just falls easily onto the paper.
    Whats the best thing to capture the pollen, just plain paper folded,
    .

    What you want to do is cut the pollen tip off at the yellow part ONLY! This link should help you with the packing...

    ive packaged three nice wax paper envelopes, with about ten pollen balls in each and am keeping them in the fridge drawer. Is this cold enough or should they go in the freezer. seems like that would kill the pollen , I know very little here.
    if anyone wants it in the future ill bump this thread for a couple months , I'm in no way interested in the seeds, pollen is free if you are interested.

    Hi Jimmy,

    I just got a Pasian N. copelandii female flower. I'd be interested in the pollen if the offer is still available.
