Right we are on track again loading Pic s .
2 ways to do the actual pollination without using a brush ..... First using the vial cap.

Second is done by inserting the stigma into the vial of collected pollen.

This is the stigma with pollen .

Great! Thank you Lionel. I understand how this method will prove to be a zillion times more economical.
If you not dreaming. You're just sleeping.

                                                     Making maximum use of limited Pollens

If you have very limited pollens .... say someone gifted you a sac or 2 , and you want to pollinate many flowers ,
this is what we do .
This pic shows a stigma with its 3 lobes .

 Take a tooth pick ( This one I blackened ) and pick up a few grains of pollen on the end of the tooth pick .
Carefully place the few grains of pollen into the centre of the stigma between the 3 lobes .

I have never seen a Stigma with 2 lobes Julie , 3 lobes are normal and 4 and on a Multi Petal .
And look how the seed pods have their individual seeds separated in 3 sections .

Hi Lionel,

Well, it looks like I have egg all over my face. I must have been absent that day in Plant Biology.   LOL  I do find this whole thread very interesting, I am so glad you are using  really nice close up pictures.  Thanks so much, I know you are so busy.

My pleasure !

Johann ... sorry I missed answering ...I thought some one else might answer your question and then I forgot as it was on page 1 .

We store our pollens for a year in the fridge , but common knowledge is that it will be viable for 2 years ...I am sure I have used 2 year old pollens in the past .

It is claimed that with the right conditions pollens can be stored , and remain viable for 5 years in a deep freeze .

Regards,
              Lionel.
