I have many philodendrons in flower now and I have been trying to catch
a flower at the right time. The problem it seems is finding pollen. I
have a flower open tonight and around 8 more flowers on different plants
opening in the next few days. I can usually catch them open late at
night or early in the morning. But can anyone tell me when and how to
collect the pollen? The top portion of the spadix always seems to rot
away at the first chance it gets. Maybe their is a trick to it or a
certain time to get it. I will check todays flower early in the morning
and see if their is a change.

It does have a bit of a sweet smell to it strong enough to lead me to
the flower. Only the real aroid nuts would be up that late to see a
