  DEar Friends,

  I was wondering what information may be out there on the storage of aroid pollen by refrigeration and/or freezing, and the length of time it may remain viable???   Does anyone on these lists have information or literature on this??
  There are a couple rare species 'out there' that I am keeping tabs on, and if it were possible to refrigerate or to freeze pollen and then use it at a later date to pollinate a bloom on another plant of the same species even in another state or country, this would be a great thing!    This was brought to mind by the recent spate of bloomings of the Amorphophallus titanums, most of which probably were grown from seed collected by the late Dr. James Symon.

  Good Growing,

  Julius Boos
