I store all my amarylidaceae pollens in the fridge in glassine envelopes in

transmits water vapor very easily.  Refresh the silica gel a day before
freezing the box for long term storage.  I find this method extremely
compact and searchable.  I have about 75 hippeastrum pollens in one 3x5 box
and about 50 crinums in another with the prior years in the freezer.
I'll dehydrate for a few days and then mail it to you if you send your

YES I would like some pollen. Please advise how to store the pollen till the
flowers are receptive.
