I've begun hybridizing, and would appreciate some advice on pollen storage for Hippeastrums and Crinums. Thanks!

I use the little plastic vials you can find on ebay.Others use small plastic bags you can find in the craft department of Walmart.Both work well.The trick is to dry the pollen for a couple of days then store refrigerated until you are ready to use it.It can also be frozen for longer storage but must be completely dry before freezing.
