I haven't pollinated Moraeas with stored pollen, but I used to keep  
rhododendron stamens in my house for several months - just sitting on  
little dishes.  Iris stamens also, but only for a couple of weeks  
because the bloom time is shorter for iris.  Then I would pick up the  
stamens with tweezers and brush them onto the stigma.
