I also use pill gel caps from the Pharmacy to store the pollen. They are cheap and can be bought in bulk. This also leads to an easy way to pollinate, by pushing one end of the gel cap over the stigma. Usually put the gel caps in named vials and then store in the deep freeze. The vials can be pushed into some florists oasis, which is cut to fit a plastic container.

Carrie, I know you know all this, but some members may find the information useful.

Plus you can eat them after you've done pollinating. LOL
