Re: HYB: pollen strikes


I often have rain to deal with during the early bloom. I just open the
blooms myself and harvest the entire anthers. At this stage they won't have
begun to release pollen yet.

I allow the anthers to dry in a shallow glass or plastic container at room
temperature for a day or two. The anthers open without weather damage and I
have all of that nice fluffy pollen whenever I need it.
