Re: Island Jim's clivia in FULL bloom link

What about a ziplock baggie instead of a capsule?  I have those and it seems
like it would be easier to get the pollen in it!
To be sure, but it's the getting it back _out_ which I have doubts
about. I can imagine multiple thumps, squeezes and vibration on the
way from CA to FL separating pollen grains from anthers leading to
powdery film within the baggie when it finally arrives. Possibly
difficult to extract and use. I'll stand by the gelatin capsules :-).

So Jim- do you want a baggie full of pollen?

How on earth does one exchange pollen through the mail?  I will get out my
paintbrush though!  Thanks.
I'd use large gelatin capsules; can be had from a pharmacist.
Or me, if you want a handful.
And shipped in a Jiffy bag or other well-padded envelope.
