Dear Bill:  

Thank you so much for your good advice. I am astonished that it will last so long. I would think such temperatures would cause it to break to pieces.

Tom

Pretty straight forward. At the end of the first day install foil trays above the female flowers and below the male flowers. (see attached) overnight the male flowers will produce pollen that can then be swept into the trays and the trays removed at the end of the day.

The pollen should then be packaged and frozen and kept as cold as it can be. The pollen from the 2005 blooming of Trudy at UC Berkeley was kept in a DNA freezer at 80 degrees F below zero and was fully viable two years later when applied to Titania in 2007.

Dear All:  I am in Ecuador with poor connections. Could someone please advise my old friend Boyce Tankersly how he can best save and share pollen of A. titanium with others?

Hi Tom:

The Amorphophallus titanum at Chicago Botanic Garden is coming into bloom and we would like to collect pollen to share with other institutions.  Can you provide any insight into the best approach to take and store (long term) the pollen?

Many thanks,

Hi Boyce!  You might ask Tom Croat at MO at least about the pollen collecting.

Greetings:

The Amorphophallus titanum at CBG is about to come into flower and we would like to pollinate the flowers.  Does anyone have pollen that they can share with us?  Full bloom in a couple of days or so.

Related request, does anyone have experience collecting pollen from Amorphophallus that they could share?

Many thanks,
