- Thread-topic: Alocasia pollination & pollen storage tips?
I have an Alocasia longiloba 'Lowii' starting to bloom (the first of 2 inflorescences is now opening) and would like to cross-pollinate it, perhaps with the local wild species, A. brisbanensis. Unfortunately most Alocasias in Sydney gardens seem to have finished flowering now. But if I'm lucky enough to find a very late-blooming plant shedding pollen, I'd like to keep some for long enough to pollinate both A. longiloba inflorescences.
So - does anyone have any tips to share on Alocasia pollination and pollen storage?
p.s. I was meant to post some (backyard hack) tips on pollinating Philodendron but actually got too busy with my own plants - however I can do so if anyone's still interested.
