|Has anyone on here ever mailed daylily pollen before? I had thought it highly impractical to mail pollen of any sort because of the moisture content compromising the viability of the pollen, but on the Lily auction, there is actually a link for selling pollen. Is it even feasible? Or is there a reason that section never has anything in it?|
(I can see maybe it surviving by sending it in extremely expensive ways, such as in special containers with liquid nitrogen or something else like that...but that would be pretty extreme just to get a little pollen, I would think.)
Has anyone here ever successfully mailed or received daylily pollen?

|I saw that too on the LA and wondered. I can't imagine the cost if so .... |

|I think read somewhere, maybe even on this site, that some people had been successful in shipping pollen in cold weather, but had no luck with it in warm weather.|

I didn't even think about that. Good thought. Maybe in the future I will sell some of my frozen pollen during the off season. I don't think I currently have much of anything that anyone would want to buy pollen from, though.
