    Since my male N. judith Fin is flowering and I don't have a female Nep. If any one has a female and wants some pollen let me know. I can collect and male you some.

    Also does any one know how long pollen remains viable? and how it should be stored?

    Thanks,

    Andre

    I think it needs to be stored in a freezer, and its viable up to 6 months or a year, depending on the species.

    in the book 'carnivorous plants of the world', they suggest to put the pollen in a small vial, then placing the vial in a jar containing silica gel. this jar is then capped and put into a larger jar containing silica gel, which is then capped. all this is then put into the freezer. Zongyi
