Published March 2006
In order to better understand options available for ex situ production of seeds, studies were undertaken to better define methods for collection and viability testing of pollen of Nepenthes ampullaria, N. tentaculata, and N. ventricosa. Methods for storage of pollen of a model species N. ventricosa were compared. Although the results discussed are preliminary, they give us a glimpse of what is possible and some recommendations for prolonged storage are made.
