  [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus pollen storage
From: "Motta, Marco" <Marco.Motta at andrew.com> on 2010.01.08 at 15:36:20

I have some Amorphophallus ready to flower, but notsame species and not in the same time.

I will try to store pollen in the refrigerator at-18=B0C.

I have read and download some article from Aroid website but no one has solved my doubt.

There is a standard procedure to freeze the pollen?

Work for any species?

I know that there are binucleate and trinucleatekind of pollen, reading the article “year 2003 N=B0 26 Page 27-32 Marc Gibernau,D. Macquart, A. Diaz Pollen viability and longevity in two species ofArum”, the viability is different,but the article is related to short time storage.

I wonder if this difference could afflict also longterm storage.

I wonder also if there is a table that for everyspecies of Amorphophallus give the kind of pollen.


Any help would be appreciated.
