    Nepenthes Pollen

    ]I am not sure if this forum or the trading post is more appropriate but I have some Nepenthes Pollen...particularly N. ventricosa hot lips x ventricosa red flower spike and currently about 1/4 of the flowers already opened up. This is my 1st flower so I was wondering what is the most way to store them. Also if anybody wants some and split seed? Here are some pictures of it.

    I've heard of pollen being stored in the refrigerator and I know that somehow people ship the stuff. But I've never done it. I hope that helps.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    To be stored, pollen should be removed from the flowers, placed in wax paper or aluminum packets, and allowed to dry in the fridge; it can then be stored in the freezer for up to a year or more.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
