I would think there could be a problem if it is a standard 'frost free' freezer. These units stay
'frost free' by actually turning on an internal heater to melt off the frost and then re-freezing
everything again. A possible way around this would be to put the pollen between two blocks of
'blue ice' so that the pollen itself is never allowed to defrost.

Would titanum pollen (thanks Fevzi) stored dry in a paper envelope in a kitchen refrigerator be viable after 2 months? I just dropped it into the spathe of my first outdoor blooming konjac.
