It would be good to see this method verified first.

Please, please, please do proper controls.
Please determine the viability of the pollen after treatment (a very simple test).

Dear All,

The article describing the microwaving of pollen to overcome self incompatibility was put into the Wiki by Robin and David. Thank you very much to both of you for editing and formatting. The title was somewhat misleading and has now been changed. Thank you, Tim, to pointing this out.
I am at present using this technique on Cyrtanthus falcatus for the first time and again on Hippeastrum evansiae. It has failed on an Aloe species but with the Aloe I had the impression that there was almost no pollen.
I will keep you updated and I am most interested in your feedback. I am very sure that this method can be improved.
Here is the link to the Wiki again.  https://nam12.safelinks.protection.outlook.com//…

Bye for now
