Hi Shirley and all,

I have not tried this with Lycoris till now, but my general methods are 
discussed on my web page 
at:  http://shieldsgardens.com/amaryllids/…

In a nutshell:

The pollen must be very dry; and then it should be kept dry and cooled -- 
in the fridge for a few days' or in the freezer for several years' storage 

Contact me at <jshields@indy.net> if you have further questions after you 
take a look at the web page above.
